    google (Chrome's parent company) is considering changes to way Chrome works which could affect tracking and ad-blocking. Be advised.

    I use C but also have Firefox so I have backup.
    I notice on some sites like physorg, where I get science articles, with Chrome I can't scroll down very far into the piece but have no trouble like that on FF.

    thanks for reminding me. I don't know about that. I often use this browser to search everything related to games, music and entertainment. For example, Mantigames, Westlife and Playing online chess.

    just now saw this post and did minor research,
    found nothing other than the op linked article...
    i use chrome and safari, and have adblock installed on both, but safari hates the extension so i normally disable it when using that browser...
    so far, chrome/adblock have been working in unison and blocking ads so well that some websites are peeved at me and tell me so...
    "HOW WE GONNA MAKE MOOLAH OFF YOU FOOLS IF YOU DON'T LET US???"
    anyway,
    if you have any updates i would like to know, even tho my attendance in this forum is spotty at best...
