Google Chrome has been within the information just lately as a result of net browser switching to a brand new extension platform. Sadly, this variation can even primarily break many ad-blocking add-ons.
We questioned whether or not this variation would trigger customers to make the leap from Chrome. So we posed this query to Android Authority readers and right here’s what you mentioned.
Will you turn from Chrome in gentle of its extension modifications?
This was a very fashionable ballot, accruing over 6,800 votes to this point. The most well-liked reply? Properly, 29.83% of respondents answered “sure, I plan to change.” We do surprise what number of of those customers will really change, although.
Rounding out the highest three is “perhaps, I’ll see what occurs.” We will perceive why you’d need to wait and see, because it’s doable that ad-blocking firms will rapidly give you some options for Chrome’s modifications.
It’s additionally attention-grabbing to notice that those that mentioned they’ve switched from Chrome or plan to change account for a mixed complete of 55.82% of the vote. So there’s undoubtedly loads of pushback towards these modifications from our polled readers.

Daniel: Firefox all the way in which! <3 I actually hope Firefox can develop again to a few of its recognition it as soon as had!
TJ_3rd: Once I first examine this a pair weeks in the past, I went forward and pulled the set off and totally moved over to Firefox. Now all that’s left on Chrome are a couple of company issues I can’t keep away from. At house and cellular, totally Firefox. I made 3 new FF accounts for my 3 completely different ‘profiles’ (2 private and 1 facet gig enterprise account). Sadly Firefox doesn’t permit pinning your browser profiles as shortcuts BUT you are able to do it anyway (utilizing normal Home windows shortcuts and add command-line parameters to inform FF which profile to open).
I’m by no means frightened concerning the change to V3. My ad blocker isn’t topic to the modifications. It really works on a system/DNS stage. Modifications that Chrome makes can’t have an effect on that. Chrome is tremendous handy for every thing else, so I cannot be switching, and I’ll get pleasure from the identical ad-free expertise I’ve at all times had, each on PC and Android.
