How many ad blockers should/can I use?

  Gordon Freeman 11:23 15 Mar 2018

I mostly use Edge browser, & although I have ABP installed, I recently got u-block origin through windows store which seems to block more, & is more effective than ABP. [It certainly works better on this site, for example].

Should I be using just one ad-blocker, or is it ok to use more than one? Was wondering about if there'd be any conflicts similar to those when using 2 anti-virus programs, & any browsing speed impact. Cheers.

I use two Ghostery and Adblock, I know of otherpeople using at least three, I don't think it mattersif you use more than one.

I don't mind a few Ads. Adblock Plus appears to do the business for me

I run an iMac with Safari and use the same two as Fruit bat with no ill effects.
