The Safari web browser for the iPad, just like its desktop counterpart, is subject to unwanted pop-up ads whenever you are surfing the Internet. Luckily, also like its desktop counterpart, Safari for iPad features a pop-up blocker tool to enhance performance. The tool blocks pop-ups that attempt to activate when you open or close a webpage, not when you tap a link.
