    Report says Google will build an ad-blocking feature into Chrome
    Google make a lot of money on ads but a new report says the company plans on building an ad-blocker into Chrome for both mobile and desktop. It's unclear if the feature will block all ads, or just block the offending ads.

    I'd love it if it blocked Google's ads. Doubt it will.

    Sometimes the ad blocker disables a few web functions though.

    I hear that Google will support plugin for mobile Chrome and it will be possible to block ads.
    I don't believe that Google will provide the browser that will block the adds.

    Also it doesn't make much sense, after some time ads will be shown differently. I mean not in iframe like currently. If you build in ad in your page on webserver level, it will be impossible to find out if it is an ad, it will be just part of your page.

    Google's business is ads... There is strategy here and it's not to block all ads.

    Of course, If they were to build an ad blocker that blocked 'other peoples' ads, and let their ones through... I can imagine advertising companies opening a can of legal whoop-ass to the FTC/EU with unfair competition cases all over the place.

    This marvellous technique should be integrated  fast cause with the add block plugins it's hard to even watch a YouTube this days..... all I see is business everywhere  ;(

    I agree. Open-source ones are a lot more trustworthy, like uBlock Origin. Not sure if they're gonna open-source it though.

    I'm quoting that article to mean that, it makes sense that browsers and big players now decide to pick a side when the arms race seems to be nearing an end. Earlier Medium also pledges to change the ad-led ecosystem, though in a different way and with mixed PR.

    Someone will make a better browser to nullify that. Chrome is the bomb but...
    Who knows?
