When you first install Chrome you will notice that there is already protection to stop most pop-up ads. One thing that can be even more annoying though is the lack of blocking of the ads on the actual web pages. It won’t block these ads from showing up unless you add another extension to Chrome.
The way to do this though is to use extensions. There are many available for you to use but I personally have found that AdBlock is the best extension to use and is quite effective in blocking the ads that cause all the problems.
Installing the Extension
The first thing to do when loading an extension into Chrome is to the Options page for Chrome. From there click Extensions and you will be given access to the Extensions that you already have loaded into your Chrome browser. Click on “Get more extensions” and this will take you to the Chrome Web Store. Simply type in AdBlock into the search box and the store will find AdBlock for you. Simply click “Add to Chrome” and follow the instructions for installation and the ad blocker will do all the work for you.
If you find that the blocker is blocking things that you actually want to see you can click on the ad block icon in the top right of the browser and select to either pause the blocker or stop it blocking things for that website. This can come in useful if you know that you will always want it turned off just for this site.
