Pprune on an ipad is miserable

Trying to scroll smoothly through PPRUNE on an IPad is enough to cause PTSD.

The advertisements are intrusive.

the scrolling leaps around

itís a miserable experience.

No adds on my iPad provided I log in. No problems with scrolling.
The major irritation is if you clear cookies, it does not default to mobile mode

I use full mode.

Agreed with the ads, you increase the page size to read it and the ads slide across and hide what you want to read.

They will kill the goose that lays the golden eggs, because pilots will give up with it and go elsewhere.

Please Pprune; rein it back !

No ads on the iPad when using a browser called DuckDuckGo, reading PPRuNe on Safari however and I get ads galore..

Or using a DNS server that has no entries for the ad networks.

That said, a dark mode would be nice.

Simple fix. Use an adblocker.
