Google At the Google I/O conference, Google just held its second keynote address, which focussed on Android. The talk was held by Vic Gundotra, and he unveiled a number of new features coming in Android 2.2 "Froyo", as well as some features coming in Froyo+1. The main theme of the entire keynote? Openness and choice, and a whole bucketload of not-so-subtle jabs at Apple. I'd like to apologise upfront for a possible lack of critical notes in this article - I'm still handing out the brownie points to Google for yesterday.

I'm just concerned about how annoying the flash ads will be. Thank god Fennec is coming to Android so I can hopefully block them.

Well, I have some bad news for you about HTML5... Ads will become far more annoying and much harder to block. It is really one of those vaguely comical things that people seem to miss, they talk about poor performance and annoyance of flash overuse, but seem to somehow miss that once we get animated HTML5 sites with all the bells and whistles they will be just as annoying for much the same reasons. It is not like the HTML5 stuff has really ímpressed with high performance or anything, quite the opposite.

And I have some news for you. HTML5 is easy to block and there’s much more flexibility. Try the Element Hiding Helper add-on for AdBlock Plus.
