    I finally had to suck it up and use my Safari browser. Seems my Mercury browser keeps getting caught up in those iSO updates.

    You can find ad blockers for Safari on iOS 9 in the App Store. Search for content blocker.

    Content blockers only work on a 64 bit device running iOS 9.

    Purify is my favorite, but Refine is also very good. I have also tried 1Blocker and Blockr and they seem to be good as well. Keep in mind that using too many at once can cause Safari to become slow.

    Some of the ad blocker developers have joined the Acceptable Ads program where they get money from big companies in exchange for whitelisting the ads from those companies. This defeats the purpose of the ad blocker and, in my opinion, is not worth using.

    The iPad 4 (originally marketed as iPad with Retina display, retrospectively marketed as the iPad 4) has the Apple A6X SoC, which is 32 bit. Content blockers only work on 64 bit systems. You'll need to upgrade to a newer device - iPad Air or newer and iPad Mini 2 or newer.

    I have an iPad 3. iOS 9 made Mercury so slow that I've gone back to Safari. For ad blocking, nothing works as well as Weblock, as it's not limited to ads on web pages. Its main limitation is that it only works on wifi connections--not on cellular--and each new wifi network requires 20 seconds of manual configuration the first time it's used.
