Google Chrome AdBlock has been Bought out

It appears that someone has purchased the AdBlock extension for Google Chrome from its original owners.  There are some articles that have popped up that say that it has been purchased by the owners of the AdBlock Plus extension, which seems to be the likely case, as there is a link to the ‘Acceptable Ads Program’ page on the AdBlock Plus site.  I personally don’t have any issues with ‘Acceptable Ads’, even though I do run adblockers.  If your site doesn’t have annoying ads I will generally disable adblock.  If I end up being redirected to a different site, or am subjected to an ad that plays audio, I will make sure that adblock is enabled on sites where things like that happen.

Oh, and if you want to see the prompt that shows up in Chrome, you can see it in the image below.

That’s all for now, have a nice day.
