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.

I just got the image of a midwife and a woman giving birth swinging towards each other on a trapeze - when they meet, the midwife pulls the baby out. The knife juggler is standing on the floor and cuts the umbilical cord with a a knifethrow.
