Next Chrome Update May Kill Ad Blocker Extension

For a blogger and online entrepreneur, one of the biggest threats is ‘Ad Blocker plugins’. These kinds of plugins hurt your blog income to a great extent. If you are in the same boat and facing this problem then there is good news for you – ‘The next chrome update may kill Ad Blocking Extensions‘.

According to Google, they are planning to make some changes to its Google Chrome Extension and this may affect the functionality of ad blocker plugins. Currently, Google has proposed all these changes under the document named ‘Manifest-Version 3‘.

Manifest is nothing but a JSON file that tells the browser how to behave when a particular web application is installed. Google is currently using ‘Manifest-Version 2’ for its chrome extension. Hence, the next changes will appear under Manifest version 3.

According to Manifest version 3, Google suggests using declarativeNetRequest instead of blocking content blockers. You can read this proposed Manifest-Version at this link.

If Google implements these proposed changes, then it would kill off almost all ad blocker plugins. This may also result in a brand switch. Maybe, because of these changes, users may shift from using Google Chrome to another equivalent browser like Firefox and Safari.

What do you think? Should Google implement these changes or not?

Of course, for bloggers or online entrepreneurs, this will be really good news but just think from the opposite side also. How frustrating it would be when you get surrounded by lots of advertisement pop-ups.
