Google Takes Action Against Adblock Users on YouTube

In a recent move, Google is clamping down on users who employ “Adblockers” to skip annoying advertisements on YouTube. The tech giant finds this practice undesirable, causing disruptions for users seeking an ad-free experience. Numerous reports on platforms like Reddit indicate that the video buffering slows down when an Adblock is active on YouTube. Some users initially suspected issues with their internet connection, while others noted delays across the entire site with an Adblocker enabled, preventing them from commenting or loading content. Surprisingly, this lag seems exclusive to YouTube, as other Chrome tabs and video streaming services like Twitch or Netflix behave normally.
