Google has created a test for ad blocking Chrome extensions, this move solidifies the company's commitment to anti-ad extensions for its web browser. Google has long supported ad blockers, even going so far as to create a built-in ad blocker for chrome last year. However, the company's built-in ad blocker was limited to ads that didn't conform to 'Better Ads Standards.' Through Google's actions, it is clear that the company prioritizes a user experience less constrained by ads.

In order to create the performance test for ad blocking chrome extensions, the company had to use its testing extension to evaluate 6,000 web connections. In its current form, the test measures the speed to which the extension can operate and how much RAM needs to be dedicated to its process.
