We totally understand if you plan to switch from Chrome or have already made the jump to an alternative browser. After all, ad-blocking extensions are almost essential for browsing some websites. Then again, you may have already jumped to an alternative web browser for unrelated reasons.

We can also see why some people might want to stay with Chrome through all of this. You might feel that it’s a hassle to transfer your browsing data to another web browser. Or maybe you’re just happy with the Chrome experience in the first place. It’s also worth noting that several other Chromium-powered web browsers such as Microsoft Edge and Vivaldi are embracing the controversial new extension platform too.
