Google Google has opened up its gallery for developers to share Chrome extensions, a step that soon should make it easier for people to customize the open-source browser. Aaron Boodman, a leader of the Chrome extensions effort, announced the move on a mailing list posting Monday, and programmer and "gallery master" Lei Zheng shared details in a blog post. So far, only uploads are permitted. Google plans to let some testers use the gallery to download extensions, too "in the next few days," Zheng said. "We are making the upload flow available early to make sure that developers have the time to publish their extensions ahead of our full launch."

If I interpret the terms and conditions of the Chrome Gallery correctly, uploading an extension to Google's Chrome Gallery that blocks ads is not forbidden. See also <a href="https://chrome.google.com/extensions/intl/en/dev_tos_text.html">....

There has been AdSweep that has blocked ads as a Chrome extension since the beginning of the Chrome Extension framework anyway...

Unfortunately, AdSweep is no longer maintained, and doesn't work nearly as well as AdBlock Plus does for Firefox.

Is there any Chrome ad block extension that supports the AdBlock Plus subscription format?
