Google Chrome's ad blocker goes live tomorrow to kill annoying online ads

Google Chrome's ad blocker goes live tomorrow to kill annoying online ads

6 monthes ago   |   By TechRadar

Google is acting against what it describes as ‘intrusive' adverts, by firing up an integrated ad blocker in the Chrome web browser as of tomorrow, February 15. What this means is that, when the feature goes live tomorrow, Google's browser will target and block advertisements which fail to follow the ‘ Better Ads Standards ' as laid out in line with consumer research by an industry watchdog. In other words, not all advertising will be muzzled. Normal ads will still run, which is handy, as many websites make their money from them in order to remain free to access. Only sufficiently annoying...

Google Explains How Chrome Will Filter Bad Ads From Good Ones

6 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

Ahead of the release of Chrome's ad blocker tomorrow, Google has now released a new blog post which looks to further explain the fundamentals of the feature and how both users and websites can expect it to work. First and foremost, this is not an ad blocker in the traditional sense due to it only blocking some ads and as a result the terminology Google uses to describe the feature is an ad filter - one which looks to filter out ads that are deemed to be “bad” or in other words, intrusive ads and/or ones which impact on the overall user experience.
Therefore the ability to determine whether...

Google's Chrome ad blocking arrives tomorrow and this is how it works

6 monthes ago   |   By The Verge

Google is enabling its built-in ad blocker for Chrome tomorrow. Chrome's ad filtering is designed to weed out some of the web's most annoying ads, and push website owners to stop using them. Google is not planning to wipe out all ads from Chrome, just ones that are considered bad using standards from the Coalition for Better Ads. Full page ads, ads with autoplaying sound and video, and flashing ads will be targeted by Chrome's ad filtering, which will hopefully result in less of these annoying ads on the web.
Google is revealing today exactly what ads will be blocked, and how the company...
