You may be enjoying your Google chrome browser pretty well but if you’re annoyed by the ads, switch to Brave Browser. It’s based on Chromium, so the look and layout is very similar to Chrome but unlike Chrome it has built-in ad blocking tools with options to block tracking and third-party cookies.
There are individual toggles for all of these on a per-site basis, so you only have to block the content that annoys you and your information as well as device is totally safe with this browser.

Well many of the Facebook users might be unhappy due to installing two apps for a single service on their phone- The Facebook app and the Messenger, both over 50 MB in size.
