So Chrome now blocks ads. Neat. As a matter of fact, it blocks all the ads on this site. Videos run fine (just about done with a watch through of "Love, Chunibyo, etc."). But ads don't run.

This may be a bit of an odd question, but I would prefer it if ads actually did run. I'm not currently subscribed (though I may subscribe once my Amazon Prime account runs out; they keep dropping shows I like), and I'm not looking to undermine Crunchyroll's revenue model.

Does anyone know how to *stop* Chrome from blocking the ads?

Also, is anyone else concerned Google appears to be using their power to kill a competing video service?

From the navigation bar, hit the "Not secure" section and go to Site settings, scroll down to Ads and change the setting to 'Allow'. Does this allow ads to appear during videos?

Interestingly enough, it's already set to "Allow".

At any rate, I'm thinking of switching back to Firefox anyway. I'm hearing it's gotten faster, they're taking steps to isolate Facebook in its own little box, and I am getting concerned about Google starting to flex their muscles in a monopolistic fashion.

I believe ads are delivered from different servers, so that could be a factor. I'm trying to test if I can whitelist all sites by adding [*.]com to the Allow list on chrome:settings/content/flash, but I can't actually get Chrome to block CR from playing videos.

Weird.

Anyway, I've made the switch back to Firefox, and it's fast. No regrets.
