Chrome to launch ad blocker officially in Feb 2018

Google Chrome's new built-in ad blocker will go live on February 15th

Google Chrome Will Start Blocking Auto-Play Ads In February 2018

Earlier this year, Google revealed that its popular Chrome browser will block ads automatically in the future. The search engine giant on Tuesday confirmed that the change will be implemented from February 15. No need to download and install an ad blocker anymore. The blocker will not remove all ads. If the website has passed the status, then the ads will show as usual. With this in mind, it's possible that the ad blocker will come as a server-side update and not as part of a major update to Chrome. A million Android users downloaded a fake WhatsApp app recently, while a search for "Chrome" on the Windows Store reveals dozens of lookalikes and soundalikes.

Here is what Google has suggested for websites and publishers which will begin starting on February 15th, 2018. But, Microsoft didn't let the listing last very long, and took down the app just hours after its release. The same goes for mobile ads with an addition of full-screen scroll over ads, and large sticky ads says Gadget 360.

"Site owners can submit their site for re-review once the violations have been fixed".

If a website or a webpage contains multiple low-quality ads, a single ad will send a violation notification.

In case you are a website admin and you do not want some ads to be shown, you can use the Google's Ad Experience Report in order to better identify and then filter out those ads which do not comply with the Better Ads Standards. This includes those ads "owned or served by Google". Google Chrome will soon have a native ad blocker that focuses on blocking bad ads and improving online advertisements for users.

So if Google were to launch its Chrome app for Microsoft Store, it has to be an entirely new app specifically applicable to Windows 10 users. It may also ask you to block advertising of certain websites with fully customisable option.

Diana Moskovitz writes for Deadspin about what it was like to work for the NFL Network, the media arm of the National Football League. Chances of the browser making it to the Windows 10 S platform are even more meagre given that the specific Windows version inherently restricts running any app other than those present in the Store.
