That's what you do all the time. And I'm not initiating anything...I just know what to expect when an article isn't anti apple.

Well I personally think this is due to Android having more browser options and having more competition... Dont get me wrong I use Opera Mobile as my primary browser on Android, but I also have Chrome, since there has been better support lately... and I changed to Chrome on my laptop...
Opera Mobile is the best for my needs and it has an option to permanently use in Desktop mode which I love, unlike Chrome's request desktop mode for each page...
It really surprises me such high use of a different browser than Safari in iPhones, since you can't even assign it to be the default one... and you have to copy/paste every link...

I block adds and even if that did not work I would not even click an add. Mindless zombies using iDevices click away aimlessly. But, who really cares about revenue? I do not.
