Problems accessing Payless...

Re: Problems accessing Payless...

It looks like Google has started to implement its "no ad blocker" policy with Chrome, or at least for some sites.  My AdBlock Plus is disabled when I go to AT&T's site.  I first noticed this last night when I went to "thewindowsclub" website.  

 

It might be time for me to start using Firefox on a more regular basis, even though I don't care for it much.  Still, it's better than Edge, which I loathe.

  Back years ago when I was still running Windoze, some sites wouldn't work with Firefox, so I'd have to access those sites with Internet Exployer.  I immediatly noticed how much slower IE seemed to be compared to Firefox.  Thank goodness now it seems that almost all sites support Firefox. I found it rather strange that some sites would not work with Firefox to begin with, because Firefox is what Netscape eventually morphed into after they went open source, and Netscape had been around forever.  Netscape actually wrote IE under contract with MS.  Then MS bundled IE into Windoze, and put Netscape out of business.  Talk about gratitude! 

 

  The one time I tried Chrome it seemed slow and clunky compared to Firefox.  I also didn't like that it used a web page for functions that were built in to Firefox's menuing system.   If they're now blocking ad blockers, I would definitely drop them.

 

  BTW I switched to AdGuard, so far it seems to be working better than Adblock.
