I can't remember...
the last time I saw an advert in a browser.
There again, I don't use IE/Edge or Chrome or actually Google anything. (plus zero social media platforms)
There is a pattern there but I can't quite see what it is. I need some more coffee.
Oh yes. I've got it now. Google is an ad factory. Use anything with their brand on it (or even their source code) and you know what you are letting yourself in for.
If I had my way then Google would be made to pay 99% tax on all UK income before they send of offshore to some tax haven just for the damage that they are inflicting on society. Never gonna happen so don't bother downvoting this post.
