I currently use Google Chrome with the uBlock Origin extension. Some sources, like this tumblr post, claim that the planned deprecation of Manifest V2 extensions in June 2024 will make ad-blocking extensions impossible to use. But are those fears justified?
Resolves YES if the transition happens as planned, and I consider myself inconvenienced by it. This would include things like:
uBlock stops working, and I can't quickly find another ad-blocking extension for Chrome that works well.
I suddenly see way more ads getting past the ad-blocker.
If I find no such inconvenience within a month of the transition, resolves NO.
If Chrome doesn't disable Manifest V2 in 2024, this resolves NO.
If I stop using Chrome or uBlock for unrelated reasons before the transition, resolves N/A.
This market is based on my subjective judgement, so I won't bet in it.
