Google is taking a tough stance against users of its Chrome browser, specifically those using ad-blocking plugins. In the coming year, all such applications will cease to function in Chrome as the company shifts from supporting the Chrome Manifest V2 API to the new Manifest V3.
The updated version renders existing blockers incompatible, signaling Google's campaign against ad-blockers. Complaints have surfaced about third-party browsers supporting ad-blockers experiencing delays in video uploads to YouTube. It was later revealed that Google and its algorithms were responsible for the slowdown. Additionally, Chrome users are facing restrictions on viewing videos if ad blockers are detected. The battle between Google and ad-blockers is escalating.
