    I can't stand seeing all the ads again on the internet. It makes me use my computer instead when browsing.

    I know there is website apps and forum apps but talking about when I do general searching like from google.

    The BEST way?

    Jailbreak and install Adblocker off Cydia.

    Some third-party browsers have ad blocking capabilities built-in. I used to use Atomic Web Browser, and it blocked ads. The only negative aspects of using a third-party browser is that they don't get the JavaScript boosts that Safari gets.

    All browsers on iOS have to use the same core Safari rendering engine (the main difference is in the 'chrome' or UI of the browser. Are you saying Apple is letting 3rd party browsers use their own Javascript engine, and intentionally crippling their performance?

    I don't know if it's changed since I last heard about it, but this is what I'm talking about:
