Before We Start

Some people browse Tumblr on the web browsers of their mobiles and don’t have the official app. However, the common issues that people face are that they use their browsers for Tumblr and get irritated with the ads.

There are lots of browsers to select from Samsung Internet Browser, Firefox, Edge browser, etc. However, these web browsers work well. Well, I use Edge browser as it’s snappy and offers an inbuilt adblocker that works really well with many websites.
