Let's talk ad-blocking.

With the arrival of iOS 9, ad-blocking is coming to mobile in a big way, and it's causing a lot of talk all over the web. It is highlighting the internal struggle some feel about the practice, but also the hypocrisy of some of its staunchest proponents. So far, it seems like the real 'bloodbath' isn't taking place where people thought it would be - namely, publishers - but among personalities.

sure, but then you should stay off the internet completely. Most browser vendors - and if you value your security, you're not using IE - are constantly patching browser issues. Most of these issues might allow you to be tracked, or crash your browser, but almost all of them can't install malware. That's different.
