It's ironic that today ads are still consuming too many resources,
when our Internet connection is 100,000 times faster, as well as
and larger computer systems.

At least that bug report got a priority of P3, which means they
forgotten about it yet. I doubt it will get any traction before the
teething problems of the Firefox Quantum 57 rollout is complete.


One of the resolutions might be to include a minimal ad blocker inside
FireFox.  It is time.

What prevents you from simply installing an ad blocker?
It's not like there's no choice.

Not everyone has the expertise to do so.

That's really hard to believe.

A friend doesn't know what a browser is, doesn't want one, but uses one
to check email on the web and has no clue.

She opens the browser, clicks the search bar, clicks gmail in her search
history, then clicks the search result every time she wants to check mail.

She just switched from Comcast to Verizon FiOS. The technician suggested
the gmail account, Now she has two gmail accounts because she could not
get her Comcast mail and set up an account while still on Comcast.

Not that hard to believe that some users are computer illiterate.

My mother-in-law doesn't think she has the internet even though she is constanly on it for Facebook, Instagram, her email, whatever. Just can't convince her of that fact.
