On Tuesday, Mozilla said it is not planning to change the ad-and-content blocking capabilities of Firefox to match what Google is doing in Chrome.
[theregister.co.uk...]

Those running ad/script blocker extensions breathe a sigh of relief ... that said at a second or third place position of the browser market will it make a difference?

Disclaimer: I use FF and highly recommend and install it for any client or friend who holds still long enough to experience it. :)

Funny that. The browser not produced by someone in the ad business.

I do not understand why Chrome has become the default browser for most people.

Me either. It is a data miner in disguise, yet the sheeple (and a number of phone makers) increasingly common choice.
