How to block annoying banner ads in your Chrome browser


Few things are more interruptive when browsing a website or reading news online than a giant, flashing banner ad that hogs the screen and distracts you from what you wanted to see.

Fortunately, it’s not too difficult to stop these window-filling troublemakers, at least when using the Chrome browser.

To activate the browser's built-in blocking function, copy the following URL and paste it into the Chrome address bar:

chrome://flags/#enable-framebusting-needs-sameorigin-or-usergesture

Then set the value in the top item to "Enabled". You can also find this function in the Android version of Chrome.

Users looking for a more extensive way to free their browser of ads can consider installing an adblocker add-on like AdBlock. But beware, a growing number of websites relying on advertising income are blocking users of such tools
