I will happily discard Google Chrome and its lovely ecosystem in the event that end-user-level content-filtering is rendered significantly inconvenient or worse.  😀  It is truly absurd to accept that software that I run on my machine might be crippled in order to prevent me from blocking content I do not wish to receive; in other words the browser will force you to receive content whether you like it or not.  Doesn’t sound to me to be very free, open, happy, good, independent, democratic, or whatever else we pretend to care about.  🙂
