Upcoming Update to Chromium May Kill Ad Blocks On Google Chrome


Google has announced wide-ranging changes in its Chromium browser engine, which is the underlying software behind many of today's popular web-browsers, including Chrome, Opera and even the next-gen Microosft Edge.

While Google has described the proposed 'Manifest V3' update as a necessity for "stronger security, privacy, and performance", many observers are describing the developments as a massive blow to online privacy, alleging that it's a cynical ploy to effectively kill off all ad-blockers on Chrome.

Do note that the aforementioned changes will only affect browsers that are built on the Chromium engine, so people wanting to continue using content-blockers can shift to other browsers, including Mozilla Firefox and Apple's Safari.
