We've now hit rock bottom w Ashely Madison. Seriously CH, do you have no shame. How can I block these?

    Depends on your browser

    Adblock works on Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Android

        I have AdBlock for Safari and it works great.

          Thank-you so much hannaone and SnackHappy. I just installed Adblock for Safari and it's amazing!

          I can't believe how well it works and how uncluttered things look without all those horrible invasive ads.

          Sincere thanks!

        Hmmm, I think the ads are pushed to your computer depending on what website you visit...

          My CH ads generally revolve around what I've been googling lately. Today it's been Japanese train pass, La Mer, Aveda and Seamless web (though I haven't ordered any food lately). Ashley Madison has never made an appearance for me.

          But what I found funny was that I recently purchased a new computer. When I first got on that computer and went on CH, I kept getting ads for plus size clothing!

            Mine are typically for banking or annoying ads w flashing colours for courses.

            Maybe my searches for hot and spicy ingredients for this months COTM messed up the algorithm!

            I'm loving my ad free world now though.
