Alright, thanks for answering, yegg.
I was referring to ads on external sites, not DDG, obviously. My phone is not "rooted" and I don't know of any way to block ads that show up while browsing inside the app (i.e. clicking a search result, and then a link on that page, etc...). Ads often take a lot of screen estate and bandwidth on mobile devices and are overall quite annoying. Perhaps "slow" wasn't appropriate. Ads are what bothers me the most.

Ahh, gotcha! We hadn't considered that, but very interesting data point. Thanks for that.
