I can appreciate the need for adverts to generate revenue.

Many of these adverts are deceptive, fraudulent and downright malicious. The problem is that most adblockers can't distinguish a legitimate advert from the malicious/deceptive ones.

For example, the fake download button has existed since the 90's. Same with the "Your Computer is running slow/infected". Then there's the get rich quick schemes and the miracle cures.

Does any desktop browser have native ad blocking functionality? Can't understand why anyone would do that. Surely they'd open themselves up to lawsuits?
