God dammit, Google.

@mkb Another reason to ditch Chrome for Firefox.

@mkb guess I'll be setting up a pi hole and teaching my mom how to reinstall windows 10 everytime she gets a drive by download 🤦‍♂️

@crazypedia Yeah, I need to get off my ass, take that RPi3 out of the box, and get PiHole running on it.

@mkb @crazypedia why are you still waiting? You hate Google but still support them with your data.
Start moving now!

@mkb Wait, wasn't Google working on their own ad-block extension?

I hope this pushes more people back over to FireFox.

@mkb since Google is working to introduce their own ad-blocker (which conveniently doesn't block Google ads), they are really just tying up lose ends, to make it less likely, that unknowledgeable users, install 3rd party ad blocker. Better go with a "free" #Chromium version chromium.woolyss.com/ or move (back) to Firefox altogether.

@mkb There's also Firefox. Who needs Chrome/ium?

@mkb Chrome should do it like Safari and only allow an rule set for blocking ads. That’s fast and the extension don’t know what they block.

@mkb Why do browser developers always forget how fast people dump browsers for better options? Lol.
