Google isn't trying to kill ad-blockers.
That's the message in a Google blog post Wednesday that appears to be responding to criticism of the search giant's plan to improve extensions in its Chrome web browser.
"We are not preventing the development of ad blockers or stopping users from blocking ads," said Devlin Cronin in the blog post.
"Chrome Extensions TeamInstead, we want to help developers, including content blockers, write extensions in a way that protects users' privacy."
Google revealed the changes in October as part of a broader plan to improve Chrome extensions.
In January, developers noticed that part of the plan, called Manifest v3, could hurt ad blockers.
