    Chrome.

    Install unBlock Origin and uBlock Origin Extra.



    There was an unofficial port for Safari. Seems to be gone now.

    Do I have to use Chrome in order to solve this problem?

    There are adblockers available for Safari. I use 1Blocker X on my iOS devices and there is a macOS port available. It is available in the app store.

    Since I have to use both macOS and Windows I settled on Chrome as my cross platform browser for desktop computers.

    The real problem is that the ad networks don't check their ads for malware. They just pass the ads on to their customers (e.g. TCF) and then wait for complaints.

    Sending David two HAR files. What's the best way? They're 70mb each.

    Same here, but on a PixelXL running Android 8.1. I had to disable javascript to reach Tivocommunity.

    How do you find and copy the files under android?
