What to browse through your favorite websites without dealing with ads? Now you can for a small fee.
Scroll is a subscription service that gives users access to ad-free content by working with publishers to remove ads from their websites. In exchange for no ads, the publishers receive a percentage of the subscription.

Once signed up and log in, you don't need an app or to install an extension for Scroll to work (although some browsers like Safari might require an extra extension). Sites participating in the ad-free experience include Buzzfeed, USA Today, Eater, Deadspin, Gizmodo, Business Insider, Vox, The Verge, Slate, Jezebel, and Salon, among many others.
The monthly fee is $5, with a 30-day free trial to see if you like it. Without ads, sites should load faster with fewer ad trackers, making your internet experience quicker and overall just better.
The purpose is to "build a better internet," which clearly starts with letting you focus on whatever it is you're intending to focus on, instead being bombarded with ads.
