They just ruined youtube with mandatory 30 second commercials. Oh well. I also don't go to Baltimore or Philly anymore. Like I ever did. I'm quite sure I can live without youtube.
I just got done watching U-toob vids about two hours ago and didn't see any ads (except for the ones IN the videos).I gave AdBlockPlus on the desktop.I see ads on the phone because I can't get adblock on anything but a browser there.
I use uBlock Origin, and haven't seen ads on YouTube in many a year. One of these days, I should switch browsers again, before Chrome starts disallowing or bypassing adblockers.
