Not only that, but the included web browser will have it turned on by default. So if you visit sites with ads - you know, like TweakTown which allow us to pay our staff and provide kick-ass kick ass content - then these ads will be blocked by default. The exposure for ASUS will be limited, as only 15 million people use the built-in web browser on mobile devices made by ASUS.
