    Hi, new here, Just upgraded from an iPhone 4S to a Nokia Lumia 920.

    Its a fantastic phone and I am loving the Windows 8 however when I'm online and I try and enter a website for a football site I'm on (Soccer), when I try and click to log in, an advert on the same page takes me to a different website.

    Its infuriating, It does it sometimes on Firefox in the office, but it opens a new tab there so its easy to remove.

    Do any users know of any ad blockers that can work with windows phone 8?

    Thanks

    Copied this straight from XDA forums:
    As for blocking ads on web sites (in Internet Explorer), unless you have a developer unlocked phone I don't think there is any way (and there may not be a way even in that case). You will not find any ad blocking software in the marketplace.

    If anyone else knows a way please do post.

    There are other browsers (good ones) like UC browser and nokia express (if u want to save on data), maybe you can try on them and check if the issue persists
