Adblock blocking in chromium.

Very shortly, Chrome is going to be disabling adblock extensions. Will other chromium browsers have to follow suit?

this is probably the 10th post about it
@palmoon This is already being discussed in another thread in the Extensions forum and I've posted my comments there as well. It's still a bit early to say how this whole situation will pan out and how Google will respond to concerns from extension developers.

I love Vivaldi, you guys do a great job.
However I'm very worried about the latest news regarding Chrome/chromium:
What's Vivaldi's stance on this? Since you depend on the chromium engine you could stand out from the crowd by maintaining privacy-friendly and adblock-friendly APIs even if Google is trying to disable them.
Please consider, if necessary, alliances with other chrome-based browser projects in doing a permanent fork of chromium maintaining the current APIs so things like uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger and so on can continue to exist on modern browsers. I and others would even be willing to pay (gasp!) yearly to fund a team truly dedicated to maintaining the viability of consumer-friendly plugins.
Consider allying with the EFF in order to fight these anti-privacy changes by Google.
@Russtopia I Merged your thread with this one. I don't think we need any more threads on this topic.
I suggest reading some of the other threads.
Currently there isn't much we can do besides wait and see. In case you want to follow the discussion happening with chromium (as we do), check the following links:
