Chrome to limit full ad blocking extensions to enterprise users – 9to5Google

9to5 Google:

In a response to the overwhelming negative feedback, Google is standing firm on Chrome’s ad blocking changes, sharing that current ad blocking capabilities will be restricted to enterprise users.

Google sucks. I keep Chrome installed, but I only use it for Google’s own sites. Everything else lives in Safari, and I keep Firefox around as a backup. I never log into a Google property outside of Chrome.

There’s a system preference panel called Choosy that I’ve been using for years. It lets you set a default browser for certain URLs. I’ve configured it to automatically use Chrome whenever I click a link that goes to a Google-owned site. Works great, highly recommended.

Hmm. Made a blog post an hour or so ago and it hasn’t been slurped up and broadcasted by Micro.blog yet even though it’s appearing in the JSON feed. Maybe the hamsters are on a break. 😆🐹

Carrot Weather’s lightning strike notifications and enhanced radar layers have made me insufferable.

“HEY KIDS! LIGHTNING STRIKE DETECTED 11 MILES TO THE SOUTH!”

Kids: 🙄

My wife is sidelined with a massive migraine, which means she’s gonna miss the Indian food dinner I put together, and that’s a bummer. This stuff is delicious.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve had to limit my intake of caffeine, salt, and alcohol. Not because I’m unhealthy but because I’ve simply grown sensitive to them (anxiety, racing heart, sleeplessness, respectively).

Don’t get old, kids.
