Here we have a case where a media platform has become sufficiently dominant that it is prepared to enforce the requirement that users view ads (and get tracked, and infected with malware, and the rest of it). It's just this sort of case that induces me to use Firefox (which I have pretty consistently over the years) instead of a commercial product. As uBlock Origin developer Raymond Hill says, "Google's primary business is incompatible with unimpeded content blocking. Now that Google Chrome product has achieve high market share, the content blocking concerns as stated in its 10-K filing are being tackled." More: BGR ("Google quietly ruined Chrome..."), Vice ("Google struggles to justify..."), CNet ("Google holds firm..."), Forbes ("Google Just Gave 2 Billion Chrome Users A Reason To Switch To Firefox"). If I can't prevent a browser from loading unwanted and unsafe content, there's no way I'm running it on my desktop. Image: DazeInfo.
