Google to limit ad-blockers in Chrome

Google will make some startling changes to its extensions system to break a number of well-known ad-blockers. However, the developers of some other Chromium-based browsers like Vivaldi, Opera and Brave have said they won't be following the same process. Ad-blockers like Ghostery & uBliock Origin depend on Chrome's webRequest API to block ads. But in Manifest V3, this feature will be deprecated breaking the blockers.
