A couple of weeks ago, I first started using Chrome in a serious manner, now that extensions were finally available. While back then things were still a bit sketchy, esp. in the “Adblock Plus” alike department, AdThwart has come a long way and seems to have been updated daily since then.
It now supports on-the-fly filter creation, adblock plus blocklists (with full syntax support) and also the unnerving “flashing” of ads while they are being removed is now gone.
Theme support also has come a long way, with one-click installs right from Chrome’s theme library, and there are some real beauties out there.
If I didn’t have any concerns about google’s ever-growing influence and the slow, but steady erosion of their once high-held company credo “don’t be evil”, I’d easily give it a 10 rating, but with this in mind I’ll stick with an 8.5 out of ten for now.
Keep up the good work!
