Google Chrome now offers better protection from sneaky online ads

"Starting on February 15, in line with the Coalition's guidelines, Chrome will remove all ads from sites that have a "failing" status in the Ad Experience Report for more than 30 days", Google said.

Google noted in September that Chrome will register you as being interested in autoplay videos if you click somewhere on the site during the browsing session, add a webpage to your phone's home screen, or when you frequently play media from a site on Chrome's desktop browser. We already had the ability to mute tabs, but now Google will be giving Chrome users the ability to mute annoying websites on a permanent basis. Among other changes, the Chrome 64 update includes various security fixes to reduce instances of vulnerabilities such as Meltdown and Spectre CPU. Since 2009, these features have gone through several revamps and today are getting two new blocking features.

On the video front, Chrome will let all users mute unwanted content. To permanently mute a tab, all you need to do is right click on the offending tab and you'll find a "Mute site" option.

Android devices gets the first taste of Chrome's new update while the version for Windows, Mac and Linux-equipped devices to follow up at a later date. HDR requires the user have a discrete GPU, the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and, of course, an HDR compatible monitor.

Google's latest control allows users to "mute" these so called "reminder ads". From there you'll be able to manually have the update install.

Additionally, the new Chrome Home interface features a new explainer that guides users to where downloads, bookmarks, and history have been relocated as part of the bottom bar redesign.
