    Apple brings ad-blocker extensions to Safari on iPhones - starting Wednesday?

    and the reason why?

    "Mobile ads are 'out of hand', says iOS 9 ad blocker creator" on the Marketing Magazine website

    "The move could take ad-blocking on the mobile web mainstream, with serious implications for any business with a stake in online ads.

    This is a scenario that has been clearly coming for several years, and any site that has made their sole focus their mobile audience...should not be surprised by any of this.

    Definitely not out of the blue and also almost needed, some mobile websites these days I find are very excessive, mobile ads pay less so some seem to go down the path of more ads to make up the difference, who needs user experience?

    Be interesting to see how wide spread this becomes and the eventual earnings impact. But the uptake will no doubt be slow amongst those that aren't tech savvy.

      Based on the prevalence of iPhones, if Apple deploys ad-blockers in Safari, the spread will be rather swift, and tech-savviness will not be required.
