I'm using Safari on a Mac with plugins Ghostery and AdBlock Plus installed. As I type this, the Ghostery icon in my toolbar indicates that it is blocking 12 trackers. The AdBlock Plus icon shows that it is blocking 2 ads. With these plugins installed, I am never slowed down or annoyed by banner ads, nor do I have shadowy entities following me around wherever I go on the Internet.
Being in the advertising business, I appreciate that ads cover the operational costs for free sites such as this, along with paid memberships. However, those who design and place the ads seem to forget that not everyone lives in a high-speed, unlimited-bandwidth world. I live in a remote location where cabled high-speed Internet access is not available at any price. I choose to live here because it's beautiful, peaceful and literally crime-free. I get Internet access by using my mobile phone as a personal hotspot, and I enjoy high-speed browsing, but my monthly bandwidth is limited. I can't allow bandwidth-hogging ads to be served or I would have to stop using the Internet only part-way through each month or pay an exorbitant amount for more bandwidth. Neither of those things is going to happen.
