    I will not enable it just like in FF so that I can have one connection less to Google

    They have to do this, it is a miserable experience to open some websites using the Chrome mobile browser.

    I don't need any ad-blocker on Chrome... I have The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse - ads and malware apocalypse:
    ScriptSafe, Policy Control, Content-Aware Ad Blocker, ZenMate Web Firewall.

    So it's the nonevent for me, that google announcement.
