    Is it google or some setting I'm missing? There are ads every where in the browser! Getting really annoying.

    lol
    Google is an ad company before anything else. That's how they get most of their revenue, through ads, so it's not strange to find them in most products offered by or through them.

    Because you couldn't thank him a second time, I did :)
    Just out of curiosity, have you been able to get ABP to work reliably on 3g/4g and WiFi? I had tried that once and wasn't able to, so I installed adaway instead (I'm rooted).
    I had tried setting up the proxy as instructed, but it just never worked right. Ads would still come thru' all the time in apps and on the browser.
