The ads don't show up on https, ONLY on http. It doesn't matter which browser you use, IE or Chrome. I use IE, Opera and I see no ads, but several cyber cafes I use have these ads EVEN on Firefox, and Chrome.
Inkfruit, probably doesn't have anything to do with this, I suggest you all take a good look at a content provider called 'Conduit' who is the culprit behind these.
