Google Chrome and AdSense

Is ad blocker a default setting

A friend who uses Chrome just told me that AdSense ads are not showing up in her Chrome browser. I asked her if she had an ad blocker on. She checked, and told me that it was. She disabled it and then the AdSense ads appeared. Is ad blocker the default setting in Chrome? As AdSense and Chrome are owned by the same people, you would not think that the ad blocker on would be the default. That doesn't make any sense at all.

It's not a setting, it's an extension that you have to manually install..

Ah, thanks, RestAssured. I have never used Google Chrome so did not know.

She checked, and told me that it was.

Do you know, this is the second consecutive day that ad blocking has come up w/r/t a browser that doesn't even have a plainly visible ad blocker. I pawed through Chrome prefs-- as well as the online help-- and found popup blockers and third-party cookie blockers and privacy settings but I'm ### if I can find an ad blocker by that name anywhere.

It's not a setting, it's an extension that you have to manually install..

Whew. I was about to ask if it was another of those google paradoxes where you have to sign in to ask for privacy.

So she knowingly and deliberately installed a third-party extension and is now complaining that it works as intended? :)

She may not have *knowingly* installed it.

On the good news side, last year when I got a Kindle Fire, I was a little upset to see that it apparently blocked all AdSense. But I checked again over the weekend, and ads on my site galore. So that's a welcome change.
