open opening an article, the ad loads first

Seeing more of this and yes on 3/4g with hit-and-miss connectivity and fluctuating data rates it is highly irritating... Also if you are running an adblocker the site will serve up an ad 'requesting' you to turn off your adblocker. Naturally when you turn off the adblocker and refresh, the site will condescend to display the content you were wanting to see; network permitting...

It is a great shame that Agnitum have sold out, because they included an excellent web content blocker in their Outpost product for many years (it predates Adblock et al), unfortunately, they only did a plug-in for IE, so using it in Chrome etc. wasn't a user friendly point-and-click experience...
