In fact, the new browser will remove all ads from sites that feature these types of ads, the company said in a blog post.

After putting those initial protections in place, Google learned that they didn't go far enough and that "more than half" of abusive experiences were not blocked.

Chrome 71 will block ads on websites that serve abusive ad experiences.

Notre Dame moves up to No
But challenges are in store for some of the one-loss teams trying to stay alive in the chase for the College Football Playoff . Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and MI hold the top four spots in this week's rankings, followed by Georgia at No. 5.

So starting December this year, Chrome 71 will completely strip away all ads on "a small number" of sites that refuse to heed the warnings. Any website owners can easily visit a Google Search Console section called Abusive Experiences Report.

Google emphasised its new security decision is part of an effort to ensure "users can interact with their intended content on the web", rather than being bugged by abusive experiences. In the interest of user control, the company says Chrome users can disable its ad ban through their browser settings. Relying heavily on its own valid ad revenue, Google has been trying to fight such websites and help all of us annoyed with and potentially victimized by their ad tricks. Google has confirmed that it will begin blocking all ads on sites that list abusive ads from December this year. Google's built-in ad blocker detects and blocks ads with abusive behaviour.

Misleading Site Behavior Page features such as scroll bars, play buttons, "next" arrows, close buttons, or navigation links that lead to an ad or landing page when clicked. But with Chrome 71, these measures are about to get stricter and more robust. Such measures, of course, have been insufficient to prevent misleading or risky ads, which is why Google is taking action.

However, as a source cited by the media outlet claimed, "They're still working together towards an out of court settlement". The trial could take up to 3 weeks and the judge will have the duty of going thru all the info and making a decision.

While Chrome 71 will automatically block ads on abusive sites, users will ultimately be able to decide if Chrome should block ads or not.

In response, Chrome 68 in January 2018 altered the behavior of redirects so they show up in the browser's info bar rather than sending the users to a specific website.

In addition to filtering abusive ads, Google will also be sanctioning site owners who host them.
