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.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

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.
