Google Chromium/Chrome, everyone's favourite web browser that descended from heaven to take us by the hand and guide us to the promised land of web browsers (that's how I look at it, anyway, but I'm insane) has been steadily evolving its Linux port. The latest feature addition? The first signs of native themeing.

People anticipate those are just a matter of time, since the extensions framework is coming together, and WebKit will get to HTML5. Flashblock is already here, via a couple of userscripts:

or
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/45343

The first one has nicer visuals, but misses some elements. I've worked around it by adding some of the second script's code to the first, though it's probably not very efficient:

And here's how to enable userscripts:

Google will never sanction ad-blocking - what are you thinking? Of course you can do it other ways, but they will always by necessity be third-party solutions at best. And Google will always do all it can to break those solutions.

Yeah, locking yourself in a struggle with your browser's creator seems like a rational way to go...
