    lots of websites nowadays put ads up that hijacked my safari on my iphone causing it to close and launch the app store to some stupid game. its infuriating. sometimes I can't even get to the article anymore.

    is there any rumors or info on apple maybe doing something about this in iOS9? maybe blocking this from happening?

    I understand ads pay the website owner's bills but these kinds of ads make me both hate the product being sold and the web pages that resort to this kind of advertising.

    I'd like to think there's lots of folks like me out there to make this a relevant issue to be considered.

    There was some talk of ad blocking capabilities coming out of WWDC...we'll have to see what develops.

    It's gotten bad on Facebook and Twitter. Tap on to a story and the site has so many ads you can't read it.

    Yes this is a pet hate of mine. I've limited ad tracking and reset my ad identifier and it seems to have stopped most of them.

    Apple will allow extensions in Safari starting iOS 9 . It is up to third party developers on the timelines when it will be available to the general public.

    {HINT HINT: AdBlock Plus developer should start working on this asap}

    The worst are the ads that take up the entire page, but give the tiniest "x" in the corner to close. You have to tap just right.

    No, the worst are the loud full page ads that count down. You have to wait until the count down is complete before tapping to dismiss.

    My God yes I dislike that so much. It's infuriating and distasteful and they say support websites etc. I'm not supported a disgusting websites that show up pop up to stupid games like the Kate Upton tits sponsored Game of War or whatever that crappy application is called. Hopefully adblock extensions come in iOS 9 ❤
