Blocking Internet Noise and Interference in Browser

I find these add-in statistics to be incredible.
  1. 2,740,190 requests blocked by UBlock Origin.
  2. 305,324 ads blocked by AdBlock Plus.
This has occurred in less than 5 years...and just with Firefox browser. That's a lot of noise and interference.
