Google announced that starting in June 2024, ad blockers such as uBlock Origin #uBO **will be disabled** in Chrome 127 and later with the rollout of Manifest V3 (#Mv3). The new #Chrome manifest will *prevent using custom filters* and *stops on demand updates* of blocklist. Only #Google authorized updates to browser extension will be allowed in the future, which mean an automatic win for Google in their battle to stop YouTube #AdBlockers . #ManifestV3 is deceitful and threatening to your privacy, and now is a good time to switch to #Firefox (@mozilla@mozilla.social) and/or #TorBrowser (@torproject@mastodon.social) if you haven't done so already! **EFF (@eff@mastodon.social) on Google’s Manifest V3**: > ⚠️⁠https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2021/12/chrome-users-beware-manifest-v3-deceitful-and-threatening > ⚠️⁠https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2021/12/googles-manifest-v3-still-hurts-privacy-security-innovation **Chrome Manifest V3 Transition Timeline** (2023-11-16) > 🚩⁠https://developer.chrome.com/blog/resuming-the-transition-to-mv3/ **EDIT** for clarification: MV3 in Chrome will still allow some ad blocking extensions, but will severely limit their blocking ability and even restricts pre-set filters to **50 MAX**.
