True AdBlock for Chrome browser

I’ve just discovered a true adblock plugin for Google’s Chrome web browser. What these guys have done, is taken the Chrome sourcecode (aka Chromium), stripped out Google’s tracking features, and added in a clone of AdBlock Plus. There’s no fancy UI for it yet, but it supports real regex ad-blocking, unlike those other hacks that either require you setting your hosts file with a million lines, or some annoying proxy you have to configure, or a silly bookmark you have to click on every page.

Check it out here: SRWare’s Iron. As mentioned in the news, make sure to download adblock.ini and place it into the program directory after downloading.

Enjoy the power of Chrome, with the convenience of adblock!
