Hi chrissiehope,

Have used uBlock origin..................would recommend this one.

"uBlock Origin is a browser-based ad blocker that focuses on simple, efficient blocking with a low resource overhead"

I would also set up WiFi DNS to OpenDNS Family server............ 208.67.222.123 ,208.67.220.123 instead of using the Default one.

Or try the Brave browser which has adblocking, script blocking, etc built in. Based on the open source chrome code so appears much like the Chrome browser. They also have their own secure search engine option if you currently use duck duck go, startpage and the like.

Hi casita-bonita,

Not that I've come across. But to be honest i don't visit those sites very often, and i have yet to feel the need to jump through sufficient hoops to get a digital signature :-)

I do occasionally come across other sites where the content doesn't work as expected. But then this is also true of chrome itself. Amazed that these days there are still incompatibilities between sites and browsers.
