What about sites that need ads to continue to provide content?

I agree about the ad thing. I'd be surprised if google allows an ad blocker considering that's how they make their money. I like blocking ads and I like all the plugins that I use with FF.

The problem I have with using the hosts file to block ads is that it leaves blank spaces on pages where the ads are supposed to be. Ad-blocking programs usually get rid of the whole element, removing the ad entirely (occasionally it doesn't do that but that's not too often).

firefox has far too many good add-ins for me to move to a different browser at this time.

I use an adblocking hosts file... seems to work fine.

I've switched back to Firefox last week. I REALLY like Chrome but I couldn't handle the web in its native ad-infested form.

Amen to that. No way am I switching to a browser that doesn't have some equivalent to ad-block. Little chance of google supporting something like that so to hell with chrome.

As long as Chrome doesn't have an adblock extension I don't care about it.
