A Whole New Web

I installed the Safari extensions for AdBlock and Ghostery yesterday. My internet suddenly feels significantly faster as sites load without any annoying ad junk. Its kind of amazing. Hell, even The Verge is loading fast for me now.

Apparently these types of junk blockers are available now in iOS 9; Apple calls them “content blockers”—which seems a little disingenuous, since the point is to block everything but the actual content.

Unfortunately this new feature of iOS isn’t supported on my aging iPhone 5—which is often unable to keep a charge for longer than 2 hours. A fancy new iPhone 6s is likely in my future.
