Next versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox to have built in advert blocking

April 5, 2009

OK, so maybe not (or maybe?) but what if they did?, Microsoft’s biggest rivals Google and Yahoo derive pretty much all their income from online advertising, disable that and those 2 will go down the tubes pretty quickly.

Microsoft has something tangible, it sells software so it can afford to offer free services like search and email as a way of promoting it’s brand, but Yahoo and Google have very little in this regard, if all adsense ads were blocked by the vast majority of browsers then Google would lose money fast.

I guess this is why Google is so keen to get their Chrome browser adopted at a greater rate.
