    I visit this one site regularly and it's driving me nuts as these big ads seem to move around herky jerky. I hit the X to close the ad and it comes back moving around herky jerky.

    So annoying when trying to navigate.

    I am using safari as a browser with ios7 and iPad air.

    Thanks

    Can I block or turn off ads?

    Moving ads?

    Unfortunately no. The only thing you can do is try to use a different browser. I know the type of ads you're talking about. They can be frustrating.

    Thanks, glad u know what I mean. I scroll and the ad moves all over. Then I go to click a link and it moves up and shakes the screen.

    This never happened in the previous os.

    Thanks, I will try a different browser.

    Moving ads?

    Isn't that only available on jailbroken devices? If they are on iOS 7, and I'm assuming they are since this is the iOS 7 forum, then there is no way that they can be using a jailbroken device.

    Yep adblocker for jb devices.

    I can deal with ads but those crazy ones that move around as I surf is ridiculous!

    Are you talking about Adblock? I could not find an app named Adblocker, hence the statement about it only being on jailbroken devices.

    There is an app named adblocker which is really a browser that blocks ads.

    I am currently trying it. Not sure if the poster meant that?

    Okay, I didn't see that one in the App Store. I'm sure that is what they meant.

    Must be :)

    Initially seems okay. But have to input every single username/password which I have so many I forget them.

    Safari just automatically log me in most forums/sites.

    And that ios7 feature keychain ? Why does it want to remember my user and nick before I even "try" loggin in? It should remember after I get the right user and pass then save it. IMO.

    No problem as I found it :)

    its just a bit confusing as there are so many apps etc with simiar names. or at least a few.

    No harm done.

    Happy that you suggested it. I will keep using it until.

    Oh I think I had that on my other ipad. I didn't use it much for some reason but then again I wasn't on IOS7 at the time.

    Thanks
