I browse with Google Chrome. On my laptop and desktop computers, I always install ad blocking software. I’d install it on my mobile version if I could do so without having to root the device.

Instead of loading the requested content, you get a page refusing you entry until you disable to ad blocking software. Or disable it for their site, anyway.
