Good god! This thing was annoying.
Came with my PC, after opening 6 YouTube videos in different tabs, there were, in total, over 3000, yes, THREE THOUSAND ads blocked by AdBlock between them.
BTW, if anyone tells me adblock is amoral, I disagree, if you are using adblock, you clearly wouldnt buy anything in the ad in the first place or would be made LESS likely to buy it from said ad.
