So you don't know about something, yet assume you know enough to know it's not useful? And you'd chew someone out who found a great way to achieve something because you think it's using tricky parts of the language, parts you are intentionally ignorant of because of some unmentioned reason?

You don't sound particularly rational. I could make a joke about your sig, but I'll leave that alone.

So uninstall the nonsense app which shows you the ad. You are in control, but you've assumed you're not, and sealed your own fate. While arguably Google can be held to blame for you not knowing how to operate your own Android device, you are arguably even more to blame. You not being in Google's "walled garden" (even though Android phones can leave any time they want, and many don't ever step foot in it) won't help you one iota if you can't figure out how to uninstall an app which is spamming you.

Microsoft has very specific requirements for its browsers - namely corporate use. Other browser manufacturers don't have this pressure.

Saying it's just HTML isn't really helping the discussion...
