-click on the Safari menu at the top left of your screen
-in the drop down menu that appears, click on Safari Extensions
-in the new window that opens, scroll down to Ad Block or further down to Ad Block Plus and click on your selection
-follow the simple instruction from there to instal it.
This is my setup and ads are a non-issue. As a bonus, web pages load way faster when they aren't loading all those annoying, distracting ads.

You know... I wouldn't mind the ads so much if they weren't targeting my fiber intake, my mental deterioration, and my libido 😧. Geez... Way to make a guy feel old!

I got targeted for the judicial pardon I need to be granted in order to vacation in Guatalema while driving my stylish new Kia. Yikes! Takes escaping to a whole new level.

This has been a duo of mine for years. I too get none of these problems.

Downloaded Adblocker Plus and another app that would let me install third party apps on my Nexus. Had to change a port setting and and a couple other configurations but finally got it to work. Only problem was it takes forever to open the Forum and ironicallly, I couldn't open this particular thread at all! I wonder if this is the handiwork of the NSA ... ?

I think the saying is "nothing in life is free........"

There are proxy services that will strip out all advertising before delivering your internet content. For a fee, of course.

You do realize that many ads target you based on your browsing history. Just saying...
