Advertisements is a real pain of our time. This is the thing that irritates every human being in every part of this world. The truth is – we can't avoid ads, but we can try to reduce their amount.

Now-a-days we can't go even a single day without looking at the hundreds of ads. They are everywhere. If you ride a car – you see a big number of billboards, if you use public transport – you notice tons of announcements, if you use Internet – ads pop up all the time. Even on YouTube you can't avoid commercials and remove YouTube ads.

This gets really irritating, especially if you are watching a video and suddenly it stops. So you have to “enjoy” some commercial for a couple of seconds. I bet you know this feeling, don't you? So you know how great it would be to watch YouTube without ads.

No doubt, YouTube is a wonderful source, but it also has its drawbacks. And one of them is constant commercials. Anyways, we at Softorino developed the way to block YouTube ads.
