Best ad blocker out there!!!

New suggestion, in Google Chrome if i go to a site the ads will be blocked on the page. If I click anywhere on the web page it will open another tab with the ad and make it my current tab along with the second tab being the webpage I want. (Hopefully not to confusing)

Anyway of blocking those?

    Hi Charles,

    Thanks! Let's see if I understand. When you click on a web page, even if you're not clicking an ad, an ad still opens in a new tab? That sounds suspiciously like malware. Can you please:

    1. Click the AdBlock button and select Options, then click SUPPORT. Next to "Have our team requested some debug info?" click here and paste the text from the box into this discussion.
    2. Attach a screenshot that shows the pop-up you're seeing. Please be sure to capture the entire browser window.
