Google In all honesty, this has taken far longer than I anticipated. Google, the world's largest internet advertising company, has removed several popular ad-blocking tools from the Play Store. While they are technically in the right to do so - they violate the Play Store developer distribution agreement - it's still a bit of a dick move. Luckily, though, unlike some other platforms, you can easily sideload the adblockers onto your Android device.

Such vulnerabilities usually get patched pretty quickly though, so it's more a case of keeping your browser up-to-date and Java plugins disabled.


Or you could just not install java and save yourself a lot of unnecessary bullshit. I haven't run java on any of my pc's in several years, and don't intend to start anytime soon.

Nice idea but sadly I'm reliant on Java for a number of things (development tools (not least of all Android and Eclipse), emergency consoles on some of my remote VMs, etc).
