    If this happens we may already have seen peak Chrome. There are too many influential users that will switch browsers, then convince friends, family, and customers to follow suit. Not blocking all ads tends to get browsers hijacked. It seems like Google's motivation is to increase profits, in spite of whatever PR they put out to justify it. Let''s see how that works out for them over time.

    If uBlock Origin goes, I go. Simple as that. Honestly this just feels like yet another tactic to get me to buy their ridiculous YouTube Red service.

    Hmm... Not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand I think the whole flat earth theory deserves to be obscured, but on the other hand I'm not really comfortable with some corporation deciding what "theories" are and aren't allowed to be spread.

    When you can say the ad networks you use no longer allow malware to be served then I'll consider no longer system wide ad blocking.

    So now you're the menace, to the entire internet Perhaps the rest of us should collectively decide to disconnect you from our internet. It's like those who don't get their kids vaccinated, when the rest of us rely on that collective immunity.

    Nobody became homeless during the shutdown. It takes longer than 30 days to be evicted from your home. I should know, I wasn’t paid due to the shutdown, despite having to show up for work. Stop spreading lies of the left!

    It's all plastic screen, so you can just microwave it for a few minutes to get rid of any scratches.

    Dude, you're probably better off just writing your post in Google Translate and posting the results... Just sayin.

    Bluetooth has become so much more than it was originally supposed to be. Today it has become a major part of handling music and audio over wireless. But yet none of these updates to the Bluetooth specification seem to really push any of this forward? I do understand that Bluetooth v3.0 was lacklustre in terms of supporting audio codecs and bandwidth, but how come we have gotten Bluetooth 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, 5.0 and now 5.1 and we are still having this limitations to overall audio bandwidth and a stupid reliance on proprietary codec stacks in order to achieve decent wireless audio using Bluetooth? We have open-source codecs such a FLAC which should be capable of providing lossless playback at around 800-900 kbps. We should be capable of having lossless stereo over Bluetooth but still the actual Bluetooth standard, even with the upcoming v5.1 seems to still be limited to the use of SBC codec at maximum 345 kbps. Why is that? It's been like this for several revisions, and the like of proprietary codecs such as APTX HD and LDAC is capable of providing 576 kbps and 990 kbps over Bluetooth 4.X. Why isn't the standard being capable of providing any sensible improvements here over the years? Why do we have to rely on proprietary codecs that aren't even supported in every phone and operating system in order to achieve anything better than SBC (inefficient codec..) at 356 kbps?? It's even worse when you have to-way communication going on, during calls when the microphone is in use we drop to even lower quality.

    As long as the game is a worthy installment in the franchise, true fans of the series, myself included, have no issue waiting for it.

    "They clicked 'I agree', we even gave them money. How can we be at fault?" Scumbags.

    One day my dad sent me a message to look at his laptop because he was getting ads like crazy. Turns out ublock accidentally got turned off. He said, "This is the regular internet without adblocking?" This is horrible, he said.

    Edge still doesn't allow dragging from the address bar to the desktop. I can't stand that browser. Such a basic function for a supposed modern browser. Nope. Firefox and I are doing just fine.

    Would definitely switch to Firefox if this gets implemented.

    That's my problem with ads. It's impossible to guarantee the "integrity" of the ads being served, and it's not just a nuisance thing anymore. An adblocker is a major part of browser security nowadays, as they not only filter out potentially hazardous or deceptive ads (fake AV alerts and such phishing nonsense that newbies fall for), but most will block out known malware sites etc as well. Even major sites like YouTube for example have fallen victim to malware being served through an ad network. My time cleaning up after these sort of problems isn't free either.

    It's becoming increasingly harder to justify browsing the web without some sort of ad blocker. At one point if you Google'd "adobe reader download" or "Skype" the first result was an advert linking to a malicious download. I'm saying this as someone who owns a site which is kept online thanks to ad revenue too. Sadly too many sties are over the top when it comes to serving adverts, my local newspaper is a great example of this. This is made worse by the EU cookie consent nags too.
