I'm just a plain old lady using my laptop for plain old lady interests...do I need Java and Flash? Searches only talk to programmers and coders.
Also,is there a really good ad blocker and/or do not tracker that won't add a load of malware to my laptop? I cannot freaking believe what I'm seeing on the web in terms of "don't add this, it'll really mess you up" and "that guy is full of it...the add-on is completely safe". It's as though no one will give a straight and true answer to anyone. I've thought about relocating to Lichtenshctein where I'm told corruption is banned. That's probably a load, too.
I'm so grateful for any help/advice you fabulous experts can provide.
