In the world where most people block ads and want to get everything for free, Google has decided to try a different approach: in-browser advertising.
Technology blog Ghacks has found an interesting screenshot in the Google’s Plus group, which shows and ad in the Google Chrome web browser, which says: “Get a Chromebook for the holidays: the computer powered by Chrome.“
How did users respond? Opinions appear to be mixed; some people suggest switching to Firefox while others don’t see anything wrong with that, after all, Google Chrome is free.
Whether or not this trend continues, it remains to be seen although we don’t expect for Google to continue running such promotions more than few times a year.
What do you think about in browser advertising?
