@poetgrant I would disagree on almost all points. The Internet has changed significantly in the last 20 years, and 20 years ago Google wasn't watching your every move. The ads haven't gone away, they're still there. That's why I have 3 separate adblockers installed. They're still showing ads, only now they're double dipping and stalking you around the internet now. I don't like being stalked in the real world either.
