Maybe it’s just me…
Chrome browser on ASUS Chromebook
Looking at the main page of bOING bOING I got constant flashes of cross-screen lines, occasional patches of visual static, and various other video artifacts.
I associate this (anecdotally) with the addition of the full-width toast add that popped up from the bottom of the browser window. Incidentally, this occasionally meant that more than 50% of the vertical real-estate in my window was taken up by adds
At first I though my device was failing (it’s a few years old now) but then I noticed this problem only happened at bOING bOING.
I just installed an add blocker (AdBlock, from the Chrome Store) and voila no more screen artifacts.
I want to help bOING bOING remain solvent. I don’t mind seeing adds, but I can’t abide them crushing my device so hard it can’t keep up with the add auctions.
Is this just a me problem?
