If you're growing weary of the web, a high school dropout from Atlanta may have the solution.

Thirty-one-year-old Chad Russell has invented a device that lets you to surf the web with zero ads. It's a controversial IDEA that's poised to disrupt the tech world in a big and fundamental way.

    The fastest way to destroy this is to feature it heavily on sites like this and have them sell millions. Once these devices are ubiquitous, then advertisers will work around it, and content-providers will begin to monetise content in other ways. Surely this device only be successful if it does not become too popular...

    Well I guess if everyone who uses the internet were to have one of these blockers installed, we would all be paying a lot more for internet access to websites.

    How ironic that I was just forced to watch an ad before I could see the video. #smh
