Ad-ons for google chrome
« on: April 22, 2010, 07:54:56 AM »
Hello,
 I was just wondering if there were any script blocking ad-ons for Chrome? such as NoScript? ive been all over their extensions page  and have found nothing like it, they have Adblock and WOT but no script blocker, if anyone knows of one i would love if you would tell me of it.
thanks

I think the answer is define - NO

The Adblock addon in chrome just removes the ads after it gets downloaded. It doesn't block it.

I have read somewhere that Chromium is working on it.

Hi Justin_XP,

There is an ABP extension for GoogleChrome:
http://www.chromeextensions.org/appearance-functioning/adblock/
but it is unstable as I found out because of the constant silent downloads of new GoogleChrome versions you have to re-establish the settings again and again, so you are better off with an ad-blocking proxy like described here:
