As you may already know, Google is going to include a built-in ad-blocker feature in their popular web browser software, Google Chrome. This is an unprecedented step because Google's revenue depends on advertising however they realize that too many intrusive ads ruin the web user experience so much that people start blocking all ads which is even worse for ad revenue companies.

There still aren't enough extensions available for Microsoft Edge, which is mostly the company's fault — they took too long to introduce extension support at first and now they seem to be doing a very poor job on attracting developers to bring their products to the Windows Store. But this isn't stopping the company from making their own browser extensions — for third party browsers like Google Chrome.
