What is being implemented by Chrome 17 that is allowing adblock to better block text ads?
I've been testing the developmental build with the experimental extension api flag and am fairly pleased with the results.
The extension seems to slow down chrome a tiny bit, but I'm sure that'll be fixed by full release.
A question I have, though, is I use ghostery and while google custom search text ads are getting blocked without fail, ghostery says that they are still coming through. It does so when the number on the ghost icon turns red and it highlights google custom search as the culprit. So is this experimental version of adblock with the new api actually working or is it an inaccurate reading on ghostery's part?
Also, I apologize if this is seen as advertising, but this site is very good for testing adblock's text blocking:http://www.serebii.net/index2.shtml
The ad appears under quick links towards the middle of the page. Adblock hides it usually, but sometimes it gets through. But if you click the poke-earth and b/w pokedex repeatedly, the ad gets through more often. I used this method to test out the experimental api.
