Major changes in Chrome may kill ad blockers

recently Blog post, Chrome extensions and online store product manager David Li announced that starting from January 17, 2022, online stores will no longer accept Google browser extensions built using Manifest V2 specifications. In addition, the Manifest V2 extension will be completely disabled in January 2023, so any content you have installed will no longer work.

“After years of development, Manifest V3 is safer, more efficient, and more private than its predecessor,” Li wrote. “This is the evolution of the expansion platform, while considering the ever-changing network landscape and the future of browser expansion.”
