People who run ad-blockers are just selfish. Sites like this one ONLY pay the bills with ads. When you run an ad-blocker, you're asking everyone else who uses the site to pay for the site so you can use it. It's just selfish. If you're going to block ads, you should only use sites that you pay for with a subscription or some other fee system.

Unfortunately, there are far too many mis-behaved ads and that's one thing Google is trying to get rid of.

How about a router running a firewall app like pfsense? Couple that with something like pfBlockerNG, and it won't matter what browser you use.

Pi Hole is another that comes to mind.

Pick up a relatively inexpensive micro appliance (or use some of those spare parts in your closets), do a little research, and never worry about the Alphabet people again.

Wouldn't they lose more money from people simply switching to other browsers? I wouldn't use a browser without the ability to block ads.

How can you say I should open ads on sites, and on the same breath accent the fact that ads mis-behave?

Until sites stop using ads sites that include sounds, flashy ads, pop ups, covering scripts that send you to shady sites, malware, etc, I will block ads everywhere.
I can't just guess which site is fine or not, and which site is basically using 80% ads, 15% malware, 5% content.

Sites and ad vendors screwed themselves up with what they did.

If the changes carry over to other browsers, they might lose people in chrome, but their ad services will gain more.

It would be more effective and more ethical for you to avoid using sites that have ads that annoy. What you're doing is analogous to pirating cable TV because you think their rates are too high. In both cases, you're refusing to pay for a service, yet consume it anyway because you don't like how they get paid.

So, you have no qualms at all about using this site while denying them any source of revenue to pay for running the site? Do you realize that if everyone did that, this site would either disappear or only be available only to those willing pay a subscription fee (more likely, it just wouldn't exist)? In fact, the revenue model for probably 90% of the web would be busted entirely.

This is a huge bummer for me as Chrome is my main browser and has been for years now. I use it mostly because it so seamlessly works between my phone and my PC due to the Google integration. But if they axe ad-blockers I will probably have to revert back to Edge.

Google would not be foolish enough to implement this because if they do, chrome will die overnight.

Will it really, though? Your average Joe very likely isn't even familiar with the concept of ad-blocking.
