Google+ is ramping up to be much bigger than I expected, but this is a big surprise...

So they want all of their customers nice and naked eh?

This sucks. I hope they don't do the same for Chrome.

i think there's a fine line between "we'll occupy a small bit of screen estate for an ad here" and "full screen app every loading page"

i hate either type but i can understand google's PoV i suppose...

 

ad- blocking apps are useful, especially when using the browser... and i swear it helps on youtube too .. i think

 

if chrome ever loses adblock or adblock plus... i am crawling back to mozilla tbh

Rarely do I download apps anymore.

Only games I get are paid either in the app store, or from a humble bundle.

I think that's fair. It's more than some major companies (cough, Apple, cough cough Microsoft) seem to want to give the end-user.

Maybe another fine by the EU consumer protection regulator would help them see another way.

I can't imagine why anyone would get annoyed over the little real estate the ads take up on your screens... Even on my phone when playing a game and those full screen ads pop up, just press "close" and continue doing whatever it is that you were doing. It's like people who don't signal before changing lanes IT'S A FLICK OF YOUR BLOODY FINGER!

Adaway and Root. Root and Adaway. I'm of the belief that if you are going to make something available for free, then it should be free and not chew up my data for your gain. If you don't like that, make it a paid app and remove ads.
