With Adblock Plus running this is what the Jalopnik FP looks like for me. I use Adblock primarily just so I can delete website panels I don’t like. The load time from a Chrome new tab is 1.63 seconds averaged over 5 tests.
Without Ablock Plus running this is what the Jalopnik FP looks like. Much more cluttered and crawling with scrolling panels, gifs, timed ads, etc. Load time averaged over 5 tests is 6.60 seconds.
My internet is fairly fast so I’m lucky with how quickly everything loads. I know Jalopnik runs off ad revenue, but the difference in page appearance as well as load times and general convenience makes running Adblock the best choice.
