I found this recent Tech Times “iOS Ad Blockers Help You Browse Faster And Save Money, NYT Study Finds” article regarding a study by the New York Times of ad blockers interesting — in particular, the quantitative diagrams showing all the items, especially scripts, which are loaded without an ad blocker on various popular sites. Quite a difference!
As it turns out, ad blockers not only allow users to surf the web without distractions, but also enable them to browse much faster and conserve their data. In turn, this translates to saving both time and money.
The original NYT story contains all the diagrams.
