    Already found workaround. Thank you Brave! So now that G has effed up news and utube, they get no more data from me on those platforms

    I've seen people talking about this but I haven't noticed anything. I use ublock origin on Firefox.

    I think Firefox is evading the notice, cuz it is not chrome based. I think a lot of people are gonna be pissed if this experiment that supposedly uses 3 strikes after so many warnings to cut you off unless you kill the ad blocker or pay for premium.

    *Pale Moon* A beautiful alternative browser that is neither chrome nor chrome-based and doesn't do weird stuff like Brave. I never saw ads on YouTube.

    But hey, because of other devices, after the [s]demise[/s] assasination of YouTube Vanced, I went premium anyway.

    I switched back to FF a few years ago after a long time on Chrome, it's been great with ublock origin, but I just read up on Pale Moon and will be giving it a test drive. Edit: another great Firefox plugin is BypassPaywallsClean if you want to occasionally read financial publications without paying for a subscription(Baron's, WSJ, Forbes, etc)

    I use a Safari extension called Vinegar and it works like a charm and Google can go f**k themselves.

    Seems it's not just Google-owned sites - is now refusing to let me continue with an adblocker on Chrome, whereas previously I'd just get a warning. Chrome's days as my browser might be over.

    Chrome's days as *everybody's* browser are approaching. Chrome or Chromium-based.

    A monopoly worse than Internet Explorer. Worse, more powerful, more intrusive, more dangerous.
