Apparently this is what is needed to do proper ad-blocking (ads do not get downloaded). I was googling about this and found this issue http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=16932 which appears to be what this "content policy" filtering thing ability is. The status says "Available" does that mean its already available? How come there are no ad-block extensions leveraging this?

Edit: I realised Available means this feature is available to be worked on and not completed. Someone please take it up and write some code for Chrome ;).

Perhaps you should spend less time worrying about blocking ads and more time appreciating all the ad-financed free content you get to enjoy. :)

It's not just useful for blocking revenue-generating ads. Some of us want content policy functionality in Chrome so that you can block things like tracking scripts.
