New Google Chrome Extension will Block Content Farms

Webkit icon
Ever do a Google search for something a little obscure, and instead of getting the information you need, you get a page full of more ads than text? Sites like this are called content farms. The farms hire people to write little snippets of text which they surround with ads.

To fight back, Google is adding an extension to its Chrome browser that allows you to block these sites. The details are in the blog post from Google. Check it out.
