Still in beta, and only for Chrome at this time, and only detects ads, but doesn't block them. I'll be watching for this one.

eh, i can see this for desktops but for mobile part of the appeal of ad blocking is speed increase and data decrease.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis
