    Hey so I have Pop up blocker turned on in Safari settings but I still get pop ups and ads on some sites I regularly visit. Is there a way to block all Pop ups??

    No. Even with several ad blockers, a few will occasionally get through.

    Click on SETTINGS
    Click on WIFI
    Click on the I button of your wifi network
    Switch HTTP proxy to AUTO
    type in http://shion.ca/ios/adblockpub.js

    Do this for every unique wifi you connect to. I don't see any pop ups using this method.

    What it does: Uses keywords to forward ads to a blackhole proxy. (google DNS).

    Even that isn't 100% effective.

    It may not be for everyone but, it works for the way I traverse the internet.
