Are You Having Problems Seeing Graphs In Our Latest Articles?

Over the weekend a number of readers reported that they haven't been able to see any of the benchmark graphs shown within our numerous Linux performance articles. This is due to an issue outside of our control and related to your browser plugins.

It turns out that all of those reporting the issues with not being able to see the graphs were either AdBlock Plus or UBlock Origin visitors or otherwise engaging in ad-blocking.

This wasn't intentional or any change on my end, but rather a change to EasyList a few days ago added an overly broad rule that was blocking anything on with a centered div element, which is silly, and blocks things like centered graphs on the page...

So if you're hitting this issue still, it's best to turn off your ad-blocker and the graphs will then show up. I assume the EasyList people will have the issue fixed in a future update to change that rule. Here's a test, if you don't see a chart right below this paragraph, your browser plugins are still causing issues:
