MackieChan writes “It seems to have slipped under the radar, but Google Chrome now has resource-blocking abilities, and may have had the ability for some time. Using the ‘beforeload’ event on the document, an extension can now intercept resources from loading. Adblock for Chrome has already added it, and I expect the other ‘ad-blocking’ extensions have as well. Before you start praising Google, however, it’s the WebKit team that deserves your credit; one Chromium developer responded to praise by stating ‘… thank Apple — they added it to WebKit, we just inherited it.’ Firefox vs Chrome just got a bit more exciting.”
