It is often frustrating when our browsing experience is obstructed by the unwarranted ads, pop-ups, and even hidden advertorial links. These are the kind of ads a user sometimes has to entertain/or even participate to get access to a web page.
To address this issue, Google has come up with a special AdBlocker that shall help discipline Ads for users without hurting content creators who rely on ads for revenue. This means that it will show only genuine adds on the web pages that don’t hamper consumer experience. As of now, its a bit unstable being a part of Chrome Canary.
However, it should be taken with a pinch of salt as Google has rolled out the feature “for developers and advanced users only,” which means that the app is still in its beta version and may carry a lot of bugs.
