(Android phone).

I logged on through Google Chrome yesterday and was hammered by ad's all over the place, played merry hell on my CPU fan, got so bad I had to quit the site, logged back in with FF, I have adblock & noscript running on both browsers but the versions on GC don't work very well, the versions on FF keeps them all under control.

Not sure if there are equivalent blockers for android though!

If anyone is wanting to know, I just found ScriptNo for Google Chrome, just installed it and thus far no adds are showing here:

...it's not just the ads Kirk, I'm actually getting new pages open on my phone. That's never happened before on any site for me and it hasn't happened on my computer yet. Weird.

Probably an ad attacking a specific vulnerability in the phone browser(s); desktop pop-up blocking is pretty good at this point.
