    Hi,

    So you might not have heard of this but there is a new Chrome update due to be launched in the next few days, and it will supposedly block all "annoying" or "misleading" ads on websites using them.

    Do you think this will have an impact on ad network revenue or will these networks find a way to continue showing the popups?

    i feel that most popups are gone already, at least on desktop, and on mobile most sites are non-existant with popups. but traditional annoying ads will always still be there

    Ads will always be there. If not popups, there are floating DIVs over content.
