    Was just coming on to post about this rather large update!

    Native client, web audio apie, and proper adblocking!

    Oh pretty please adblocking, oh pretty please work *bows head in little prayer* :D I'll have to give this a try later when I'm not busy...by the way, so far Print Preview is a nightmare :'(

    Edit: Anyone know if this new API ability will allow Ghostery to work better as well?

    It's basically confirmed to work already by the Adblock Plus guy.

    Ghostery should work as well as noscript since you'll be able to blacklist domain requests that go into getting that javascript.

    Proper adblocking sure sounds nice. Though I dunno. I just dont really like Chrome. It always seems to render pages strange to me for some reason. I still like and prefer Firefox, but may check this out.

    Thanks!

    Strange. Maybe give it a try when 15 hits stable.

    Those of us on 15 can use the WebRequest API to block ads. It works just as well as Firefox's and solves all of the "known issues" with Chrome adblocking.

    There's going to be a change in the API that allows better control for extension developers, coming in version 16 (so far, it was supposed to be all set for version 15, but got pushed back). It'll allow better ability to block ads and, perhaps, other types of content (hopefully Ghostery won't be so crippled either). Google, up until this, restricted their APIs quite a bit. So blocking was pretty half-arsed, and sometimes if you do manage to block an ad or tracker serving, you might not be able to the next time you open the browser again.

    Hey Hungry, is that experimental "thingie" that you pointed to when I last asked about how you did it, being updated? Or is is still the same as when you last spoke of it?


    Lol, this "thingie" is what I was referring to: https://sites.google.com/a/qux.us/abpc/ Is that going to continue to be updated? The reason I ask is because I don't know if it's a filter list or a special version of ABP.

    So it does happen then? Several critical exploits that broke free of the sandbox.

    @Funky, I don't think so, but it's possible that these critical exploits may have led to it?

    The filters are updated. The extension is not. It's just a proof of concept.

    I'm sure it will be pointed out that none of those were "in the wild", therefore no big deal...I however consider the fact that it can be done to be a "big deal". It's not exactly shocking anyway, it's code, code can be busted up. I'm very happy Chrome has this security in place, but I'm not one of those ignorant enough to think that having it settles anything once and for all.
