AdBlock Plus, a popular extension for Google Chrome and Firefox, has issued an update, which now allows non-intrusive advertising by default.
Following such “drastic” move, add-on authors have received a lot of negative feedback, blaming them for all kinds of problems.
However, what they failed to realize was a simple fact that users can still disable all the ads they want.
As one of the commenters pointed out:
How can commenters here not understand that much of the internet is free BECAUSE OF ADVERTISING?
As much as people like sharing their work a lot of sites wouldn’t exist without support through ads.
So what ads are acceptable?
Static advertisements with no animations, no attention grabbing images, sounds or other annoyances.
What do you think about their new policy?
