Current version doesnt have the issues with laptop scrolling.  But Hotmail doesnt want to let me use the Full Live version with preview bar and all that

About time they added the extensions to the stable release channel. I've been using Smoothscroll for Chrome. It's not perfect, but will make scrolling a lot easier on the eyes.

Ok, so I've given it a go.  It hardly blocked any ads, and what ads it did block were only removed from the page after it loaded.  Pretty disappointing.

Well, because of the massive conflict of interest you get from using a web browser made by the Internet's largest advertising company, that's not really surprising. It's why I don't use Chrome. Saying that, the majority of Mozilla's funding comes from Google  :-(

You could always try this: http://lifehacker.com/5046529/how-to-block-ads-in-google-chrome . It works like a charm for me.
