    Google says it’s making Chrome more private, but advertisers will still track you
    It’s a tightrope walk

    I do think it's an interesting idea, because we need a solution for the ad-blocking problem. Still, ads are not supposed to track you and are not meant to be annoying. I don't know what's so hard for Google to understand about this. The "acceptable ads" thingy that they came up with is a joke. That's why I keep saying that Chrome can't be trusted.
