On my Macbook, I use an up-to-date Google Chrome with the Ublock Origin extension, which seems to be the best of the ad blockers these days.

(Note that there are several different ublocks listed in the Chrome extension store, it's "Ublock Origin by Raymond Hill (gorhill)".)

On Android, I use the Brave browser which is a google chrome variant with built in adblocking.

I haven't had any problem with malware redirection.

Having said that, it obviously would be better if Parsad banned malware ads from his site...

The problem as I understand it from other forum's that have dealt with it is that is malware that has infected the ad service provider so it's not something the site administrator can easily fix aside from turning off ads completely or finding a new ad service provider. I've never experienced the issue on my Mac but it was terrible on my iPhone before I installed an ad blocker app, making a couple sites completely unusable.

I haven't tested Brave on ios but I've used it on Android and it's good. It's available for ipod in the app store...

I use StopAd. Itís free and seems to work (no issues for at least one day now)
To be a realist, one has to believe in miracles.

Thanks Spekulatius and jimjam. I have installed StopAd and it works well with Safari but there seems to be no way to enable on Chrome browser on ipad.
