Since last month, Googleâ€™s home-baked web browser has started to block advertisements on it own via the inbuilt ad-blocking tool. The browserÂ automatically kicks outÂ annoying ads from websites that donâ€™t stick to the Better Ads Standards.
Chromeâ€™s ad-blocker is a clear competitor to the current industry leader AdBlock. But it gives users ease of use because they donâ€™t have to use it at all. It doesnâ€™t need to be installed (itâ€™s turned on by default), andÂ the blocking of advertisements happens without any user interaction.
But there could be times when Chromeâ€™s ad-blocker might interfere with the natural loading of the site, as itâ€™s a familiar thing with ad-blocker tools. This may lead to degraded user experience and possiblyÂ site showing errors. In such cases, you can disable the inbuilt Chome adblocker.
How to disable/enable Google Chrome Ad Blocker?
The only drawback or advantage, whatever you call it, of the ad blocker in Chrome is that you canâ€™t disable it entirely. The ads can be disabled or enabled on a per-site basis.
- Open a site in Google Chrome.
- Now, in the address bar, click the green padlock or info button.
- Next, click Site Settings.
- Scroll down to find Ads.
- In the drop-down menu, click Allow.
- Now, you can close the Settings tab.
So, this way you can disable the default ad blocker in Google Chrome. You can click Block (Default) to turn on the ad-blocker again.
Itâ€™s not advisable to disable the ad blocker unless itâ€™s necessary.Â Advertisements are bread and butter for many, but lots of sites exceed the limits and go for intrusive ads and popups options. To counter those cases, Chromeâ€™s inbuilt ad-blocker is here to help you. In case youâ€™re wondering, Fossbytes follows the Better Ads Standards and only displays ads which are non-intrusive in nature. Any feedback and suggestion regarding the same are welcome.
