700 publishers face ad block in Chrome update...
Google has warned about 700 publishers that their current digital ads would be blocked from reaching consumers under the new Chrome browser system set to be introduced next year that will have much tighter ad-blocking software.
Google is not expected to be the only one tightening its standards. Apple’s Safari, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Mozilla’s Firefox, according to one industry executive, all expected to tighten browser standards to keep out the most intrusive ads.
The Coalition for Better Ads, an umbrella organization that formed just over a year ago, has been trying to form standards that will enable the industry to self-regulate.
