I switched to uBlock after I saw an ad on youtube. I was pissed that I was watching an ad.

I assume one reason is that AdBlock-Plus has reached a point in popularity where everybody and every business serving up ads pretty much knows about it. And I've heard even months ago that AdBlock has begun making deals with certain companies who will pay for them not to block their ads.

It uses the same ad blocking lists as ad block plus but does so using less cpu and less memory.

"Only" adblock, "only" youtube. You fucking fanboys are ridiculous. The fact that this is happening should get you pissed, instead you make up reasons why it's not that bad. When Google starts blocking all adblockers in Chrome, I hope you'll remember being angry at my comment instead of being angry at Google. And I hope you'll feel like the idiots you are.

This is what I was thinking. I don't use chrome, if my browser did something like this I would switch it with no hesitation.

This. There's a worrying trend recently towards fanboy/apologists trivialising bad behaviour by corporations. "Oh it's OK, why don't you want that company to have your browsing history / credit card number / live GPS coordinates / an entire list of your friends and their contact details? They only need it to provide your service!" Ugh.

Also, nice username. ;)

This is nothing new. People get emotionally invested in things they've invested in. In the 90s we had gaming console wars because of this exact thing.

Yip, people don't seem to realize that decisions like this are rarely made spuriously. I stopped using chrome some months ago after they not only banned youtube downloaders from their plugin-store, but then made it where you could only install plugins from their store. This is anti competitive and dirty. Seeing this behavior start to snowball is 0 surprise, and I agree that they'll continue chipping away at ad blocking.

Similarly on Reddit I left that site as soon as they started nuking articles about the legal troubles of Ellen Pao and her husband that made it to the front page. No it wasn't a huge deal, but it showed that they no longer valued freedom of speech and what followed was hardly a surprise to anybody who realizes these sort of decisions are not made spuriously.

considering the original story circulating was "ADBLOCK BANISHED FROM CHROME" i think this title is trying to make a point in the opposite direction... because it is in fact, not a big deal.. its not that google is "blocking" adblock. they found a way to get past adblock. adblock is probably trying to come up with another way to get around the ads.

why would YouTube - whose business model revolves around ads - not try to stop adblockers? I'm sure it is a top priority, because they lose a lot of profit from people blocking ads... they want to maximize profit, do you know this?

Considering they didnt use their power as the (essential) distributor of AdBlock to simply remove it from Chrome (as the article before tried to imply), and are just using a new coding method to make Adblocks previous method obsolete, I dont see why this the big deal people are making it out to be...

if google were removing adblock from the chrome store, or banning, banishing, them in some way that would be wrong.. but they aren't.

Because Youtube is Google and Google makes Chrome. Conflict of interest. Google has shown which side they're on in that confict when they do things like this. But hey, people seem to have the attention span of a mosquito these days, so here is some more food for thought:

Can you see the pattern yet? Google needs ad money to survive. Google blocks things that block ads. Do you understand now?

Doesn't matter.

Use uBlock Origin anyway.

Is this only a problem for chrome users? I have yet to see an ad on youtube. I am using firefox and adblock.

Yes. Google owns youtube so they apparently put the youtube app innthe browser which works around adblock

I've been using Chrome and ABP all day and haven't seen an ad yet. I feel as though I'm doing something wrong by the way everyone's bitching about it. I've got Palemoon at the ready just in case though (much as I loathe the Firefox-esque interface).

Edit: Figured out that I can put the tabs on top. All is right with the universe.

I wasn't getting ads either. I went to chrome://apps/ removed the YouTube app and installed it again. After I did that I started getting the ads.

I'm not getting ads on YouTube either. But I don't enable AdBlock everywhere. If the ad is unobtrusive, and it's a site I trust, I let it run. I'm not against ads, just certain ads: Pop-ups, flashing ads, ads that play music, ads that are videos, ads that display shady websites, too many ads on a single page. Three plain adverts on a page is okay for me. If they're clustered together, or relevant to what I'm doing, then the limit moves up.
