In the News NetApplications has released its latest browser market share figures, and these figures show that Chrome has overtaken Safari as the number three browser worldwide, behind Internet Explorer and Firefox. IE, by the way, continues to lose popularity rather fast.

The only thing I don't really like is the lack of a good ad blocker. AdSweep doesn't work on a lot of sites, the AdBlock+ port doesn't seem to support subscriptions, and I really don't want to use a proxy like Privoxy.

Go to http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/46974 and click on the "The extension for Chrome" link. Install it, open its configuration windows and select which ones you'd like to subscribe to. Works like a charm.

Thanks! This one finally works. At first it looked exactly the same as the AdBlock+ port I had tried before (which supposedly supported subscriptions, but it never worked), but this one actually works fine. And sites like Phoronix load so much faster...

Thank you for this. This link is enough to make me now consider using Chromium (on Arch Linux KDE) instead of Firefox.

The one annoyance left for Chromium is that it doggedly insists on using GNOME-like file dialogs, whereas with Firefox I was able to set an option in about:config to get it to use the KDE file dialogs.
