Google has said Chrome 64 will start blocking redirects from third-party iframes, and it'll now show an infobar instead of redirecting a user. The exception being if a user has been interacting with the frame.

Chrome 64 will be rolling out in the coming months.

That's excellent news. There have been several reports of iframe redirect site hijackings here.

Finally. I am so sick of all the ads popping up while I'm on any site, and <snip> even more. It's about time they do something about it
