    Hey guys, I would like to bring to your attention that it seems like Google Chrome is also blocking .rar files now as well. I noticed this today when I went to go check my earnings and I earned $0 from Chrome. I might try out some CPA/content locking in the meantime until there's a viable alternative.

    If these are self-executing rar files its pretty hard to make the money by sticking the rar inside a zip, but if you have a captive audience, and can guarantee the downloads - that's certainly an option. I doubt chrome thinks .zips are malicious.

    I think your idea of using a browser check, and substituting a CPA with content locker for chrome visitors is quite viable as is.
