Chrome will block annoying ads from February Google's Chrome browser will begin blocking annoying and nuisance advertisements on webpages from February, 2018
Google previously announced plans to block nuisance advertisements on webpages. It defined such elements as being auto-play videos with music, or ads that prevent a user from using a webpage for a set amount of time.

Chrome browsers will start to take actions against such ads from February 15, which doesn't appear to coincide with any major release of the Chrome browser.
