Chrome's Ad Block Extension Proving Ineffective

by chaimcitronenbaum / March 18, 2015 8:46 PM PDT

I recently resorted to Google Chrome's Ad Block extension to get rid of irritating ads that pop in while surfing. However, I find the extension less effective because the ads continue to appear. Is the application malfunctioning or did i download an ineffective ad blocker. Is anybody facing the same issue? If yes, then kindly give me a helpful solution.

I see Grif's advice was shared.

Thank you Bluezee for that.

However I find I needed to install Adblock+ which is not Google Chrome's own Ad Block to kill off more ads. Not that we can kill them all but it's quite a reduction.
