All Parents Should Download This

What may be the most talked about feature in iOS 9 is a new class of application called a Content Blocker. These apps work within Safari to block ads, tracking scripts, comments, adult sites, etc... Generally all the crud that slows down and gums up our web browsing experience. I won't try to tackle the ethical implications of blocking legitimate ads that pay the bills for many of our favorite blogs. Everyone else can determine that for themselves. Instead, I'll focus on the positive aspects for all us parents.
