Last week we asked you whether or not you use Adblock Do You Use Adblock? [MakeUseOf Poll] Do You Use Adblock? [MakeUseOf Poll] Read More to block ads on websites. The results were interesting, but even more interesting was the discussion which developed in the comments, giving us an insight into what people truly think about ads and ad blocking. If you’re at all interested in the subject, I recommend that you read those comments.

Out of 1107 readers who voted, the results were as follows: a staggering 60% use Adblock on every website, 28% use Adblock, but have whitelisted certain websites, 2% only block ads on website they don’t know, 5% have used Adblock in the past but stopped, and another 5% have never used Adblock.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.


This week’s poll question is: Which Mobile OS Is Your Current Phone Running?

If you don’t pay attention, you may think iOS and Android are the only operating systems out there. Although they are undoubtedly the most popular, at least in developed countries, it does not mean we all use them. In this poll, we will try to find out which mobile operating systems are popular among MakeUseOf readers, and maybe even discover the true mystery once and for all: are there more iPhone users or Android users out there?


Don’t see your OS on the list? Don’t forget to tell us in the comments what it is. You’re also welcome to tell us why you’ve chosen your current OS, and what makes it better or worse than others.

    Currently using Windows Phone 7. The design is beautiful, and it has a fast and easy to use UI. Because it's a Windows platform, it has Office already and it works flawlessly. In due time, I honestly think WP7/WP8 will eventually kill the iPhone. Android may be too complicated for iOS users, but WP7 is as easy, visually appealing, but most importantly compatible with the Windows computer most use.

      Thanks for the informative comment! I'm very curious about Windows Phone 7, but have yet to try it. Which device do you own?
