Our adblocker is based on easylist (same used by ad-block pro) and should block the same as adblock browser or the adblock pro extension.
However, for the adblocker to work properly in OfA you need to enable data savings and the adblocker feature in Settings.
There are some cases when you would still get ads.
- Some ad providers are whitelisted
- if you have loaded a page without data savings enabled there is a chance that the ad content has been cached and if so, it will display.
- If the content is stored on secured servers (https) we do not compress or block it due to security reasons since compression and blocking is done serverside (on turbo proxy).
- Furthermore, publishers (websites who display ads) find new ways to display their ads to the users.
Since its the only way for them to make money like sending the masked URLs to trick AdBlock List components or create new sites that is not in easy list.
