uBlock taken down from Chrome store - https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/issues/50
Thank you for contacting Chrome Web Store Support
Sorry to hear that your extension was taken down.
It's seems it had a policy violation and thus it was taken down.
An email was sent to email@example.com explaining in further detail.
Check your spam folder just in case. Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

wait, there are people who still use chrome in 2015????
IM CALLING IT NOW THAT THAT FUCKONG MONEY HUNGRY KIKE MACFAG HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS.
First know the difference between Chromium and Google. It uses Google's app store for extension support, which is in fact, not free and owned by google and OP's topic is the prime example of it and its abuse of power. If it was free as in freedom, this thread would never exist.
You do not rely on Chromium store to install extensions. You have the choice to install extensions from external sources.
Also, services are not free or nonfree, they have other issues.
That's right, Chaim.
Let's ban those fucking nazis!
Do people actually have chrome installed on their own computers for personal use?
The extension is a looming threat to some of the largest companies on earth. The WSJ just did a write up on threat ad-blockers pose.
This one can't be bought.
That is a phenomena ABP is only too happy to exploit for their benefit.
So, the answer is likely no.
Google finally figured out uHide was a scam.
One further step in getting these fucking paid ad company scam artists out of the business world forever and having to "advertise" for spare change on the fucking street.
Reminder that Mozilla will soon have complete control over add-ons for Firefox like Google does for Chrome, and they can do the same.
And reminder that anyway, gorhill's uBlock has not been submitted to AMO and thus the xpis in gorhill's repo won't work in the future unless gorhill submits it.
>Desperate Adblock Plus dev is desperate
go fuck yourself
gorhill's ublock is now called uBlock Origin
>mfw using both of them at the same time
Chromium uses GApp store as a matter of convenience. Nobody is locked into using it exclusively. Everyone is allowed to modify Chromium to point to a different app store should a different one exist. You don't even need an app store, you can just download the extensions you need straight from the website.
Google uses your geodata to send their goons to your home and confiscate any Google TOS-violating contraband. They'll also log your keys in Chrome and compare it to their archived profile of your computer usage habits to determine when it's most likely that you're taking a dump, so they'll swoop in when nature's calling and you'll have no chance to do anything about it.
>only paranoid fucks give a fuck about that shit
mfw anon makes that comment in a thread devoted to a privacy extension
No, I wouldn't give a shit about ads if all they did was clutter up the page. It's the endless tide of tracking cookies and scripts that come with them that I use an ad blocker for. I don't want to be tracked across every site I visit by fifty different companies.
