Updated with real chrome adblock addon.
The famous Adblock Plus for Firefox is finally available for Google Chrome. It brings the same convenience of blocking unwanted ads as you’re used to.
Simply install it and forget it. It’ll block all the ads in the background, update its filters automatically and never bother you.
From authors of the addon:
Adblock Plus is a community-driven open source project that aims to make the internet better for everyone. It was originally created for the Firefox browser and with more than 100 million downloads it has become the most popular browser extension in the world. We are now offering Adblock Plus for Google Chrome™ (formerly AdThwart) as well and the community is working hard to produce the same value you know from the Firefox version.
