Revealed: The naughty tricks used by web ads to bypass blockers

Jez in Syd

I get that publishers like El Reg need advertising content. I'm not anti-advertising.

But so many web site ads behave badly. Auto-play (with sound!) videos. Crash my browser. Freeze my tablet. Track me without my consent.

And half the companies which advertise via Google ads seem to be dodgy. I mean out-and-out fraudulent dodgy.

Having resisted ad blockers for a long time I am likely to start using them unless the publishers clean up their web sites.
