No, the third option is still preferred, in my opinion.

HttpClient 4.0 is considered BETA. That did not, however, prevent Google 
from including it into its Android platform.

As far as I understand the main objective is to ensure the retrieval of 
content of an ad does not block for too long thus preventing the server 
from sending a response back to the client in a timely manner. So, 
instead of retrieving content of the ad synchronously, respond to the 
client without blocking and make the browser download the content of the 
ad asynchronously, either using AJAX or an iframe.

Hope this helps
