So, this is like add-ons?
If it has a bookmark sidebar and ad blocker i'm there.
Same, but google lives on ads so...

There are several ad blockers available. In the official extension gallery, I know of two (AdSweep and AdThwart), and there several more I dont think are in the gallery (AdBlock+ and DvrCr Ad Blocker or something weird like that). And there are site specific ones for sites like facebook etc as welll.

According to the "Ad Sweeper" extension page, all it can do is HIDE the ads, due to limitations to what javascript extensions can do. Also, it crashes occasionally I hear. So if those are enough problems for you to not try it, then don't get it.

Note: I do know it only hides ads. It's impossible to block ads like AdBlock Plus for Firefox does. Any extensions claiming that they do block ads are lying.
The reason for this is because Chrome extensions uses Javascript, and it's impossible to block connections through Javascript like it's possible using native code in Firefox.

Some people recommend AdThwart which blocks some ads from loading/connecting to while Ad Sweeper can HIDE the others AdThwart can't block.

On the good side, XMarks for Chrome is now Beta so that's pretty cool. If you still have the ALPHA, you must manually update it (no need to uninstall) at this page.

I'm using Google chrome for a while now and I love it ^^
You can switch between themes it's much quicker than Internet explorer
I heard Google chrome is getting an OS lik windows and linux ^^ sounds fun

I downloaded the beta version, and, it sucked.


It's only a web browser. No desktop, no nothing.

Hmm... no Adblock is a deal-breaker for me. Of course, Google would never make Chrome Adblock-compatible because they are responsible for most of the ads on the internet in the first place.

i have liked google chrome as it is faster on some websites than firefox but script handling and overall add-on availability makes firefox better for me
nice work with the extensions addition, it doesnt seem to far tht google would be on par with firefox though firefox first page is google hence advertising google themselves

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    My spidey senses must have been tingling because I guess I logged on at the perfect time today to nuke a bunch of spammers lol
  • Faust03 @ Faust03:
    they seem to be getting worse
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Yeah it seems to have been a pretty rough few weeks/months for spam. Sadly I don't have access to or insight into why/how it's getting past the spam prevention measures we have in place :(
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Disgruntled banned members probably writing script batches
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Eh I don't think it's that, the content of the spam isn't all that different than what we've been seeing for the past like... decade. I'd imagine if it was a disgruntled banned member then the content would be different, not crypto recovery and illuminati shaman scams lmfao
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Never know
  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    Catboy brought up the idea of a new staff tier specifically for anti-spam to combat the issue, as several of us have noticed it getting worse with no apparent changes to prevent it. Any chance of this happening, or at least introducing a limit to the number of threads new users can post? @Sicklyboy

    135357153715613756 posts by a single member in a short period of time? that seems like a task that would be better handled by a bot than a human
  • NinStar @ NinStar:
    bots vs bots
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    A new staff group isn't really needed
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That can go bad say they make the new staff group and then start blaming that specific member for not keeping up with spam removal
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    @AdenTheThird, wish it wasn't the case but I unfortunately have no insight into that nor the ability to implement/change anything like that
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Global Moderators don't have that kind of config access
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Banned Spammers a dating web page for bots!
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    If anything normal mods should just be brought back
  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    A limit on how many threads new users can start should be put in place. Simple, non-intrusive, gives mods plenty of time to respond to spam before they can do it again.

    It's just becoming more and more of an issue and I don't see it stopping until preventative measures are taken.
