guess which all-powerful tech monopoly is breaking ublock origin (and umatrix, and likely many other similar add-ons, such as noscript) in their browser, which happens to be the most popular browser in the world?

bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/i

who could have foreseen this? who would ever think that an advertising company's web browser would end up breaking compatibility with an ad blocker? frankly i'm shocked

@lynnesbian This means that ad blocking is becoming sufficiently mainstream that it's beginning to have an impact on Google's bottom line.
@bob @lynnesbian It's funny how so many people's almost instinctual response is "lol, Im on Firefox" as if it is some sort of safe shelter, when Google effectively controls Mozilla through it's pocketbook as well.  Without Google's money, Mozilla dies.  Google is almost 85% of their funding according to their last financial statements.

At this point Firefox exists solely as an anti-trust shield.
