Google Chrome

FYI.  I just read an article that said Google Chrome is rolling out new updates.  One of those updates will disable the Ad Blocker extensions.  I don't see many pop-up ads on my computer so I assume I have loaded an ad blocker extension. 

I have no doubt that sometime before the end of my time, the internet will be as bad as local tv channels.  Full of ads that we are forced to watch or leave the room. Will the internet also use the little trick of turning up the volume on pop-up ads.  That really drives me crazy and I try to remember which programs or channels (I watch Roku so I get all kinds of strange little channels) that use this irritating trick. 

If anybody wants to pick up the thread on their blog and explain what extensions are and how to find them, I'm sure there will be some folks that would like to know. 

More later .....

  1. Really? I have them and I love them.(ad blocker) So then you can go maybe to another browser if Chrome is only doing this. I prefer Chrome over Explorer or Edge or any of the others. Damn.

  2. My computer and Google Chrome software are so old that they don't get updated anymore.

  3. This is new to me. I'll pay attention to see if anyone else knows the scoop.

  4. Generally I find that update does not mean new and improved.
