How to Block Ads With Horse Browser - in-built as blocker for YouTube, Reddit and more
Research shows us that the average person is exposed to hundreds of ads on a typical day [1]. Of course, not all of these ads will consciously register on our radar, but the fact remains we’re constantly bombarded with adverts and much of this exposure takes place online, wasting time and hindering our productivity.
In this blog post, we’ll share how you can block annoying ads on the web. So you can finally watch ad-free YouTube tutorials and scroll Reddit for answers, without seeing adverts in your feeds. Read on to learn how to stop online ads for good.

➤ First up, why is it so important to block ads?

It may seem an inevitable, daily annoyance but there’s a hidden cost to online ads. Eye tracking technology has shown that internet users spend around 6.58% of their time looking at ads [2]. That means for every 10 minutes of navigation, a user spends on average 40 seconds on ads. And, since the average person spends 6.5 hours a day online [3], these seconds cumulatively add up to vast amounts of wasted time, over the course of months and years of internet use.
By blocking ads online, you can browse distraction-free and, most importantly, save valuable time.

➤ How can you block online ads?

One of the best and most secure ways to block online ads is to use an internet browser that comes with an in-built ad blocker.
In this blog post, we will share information about Horse Browser, a new web browser designed for online research. Horse Browser offers a range of cleverly-designed features, aimed to help you focus and become more productive online. One of these features is a powerful in-built ad blocker that prevents you from becoming distracted by annoying online ads.

➤ What is Horse Browser and how does it work?

Horse Browser is an innovative new web browser, designed to help you organise internet research and say goodbye to messy Tabs. Horse Browser replaces Tabs with its own unique navigation method, named Trails.
Every time you click on a link, a new page is opened on the Trail, creating nested pages in your Sidebar that perfectly track your online research. Trails act as your History, Bookmarks and Tabs in one. You can delete, move, re-name and customise pages in your Trails to efficiently organise your online research.

Sencha Tea

Sencha (煎茶) is a type of Japanese ryokucha (緑茶, green tea) which is prepared by infusing the processed whole tea leaves in hot water. This is as opposed to matcha (抹茶), powdered Japanese green tea, where the green tea powder is mixed with hot water and therefore the leaf itself is included in the beverage. Sencha is the most popular tea in Japan. It represents about 80 percent of the tea produced in Japan.
