How to Block Ads in Google Chrome

There has been a tremendous response to Google Chrome (at least from the Techie community), however, people are still holding from using Chrome for the simple reason - it cannot stop those ads being served to you. Now, there is a 'fix' to avoid that. At Geekzone forums, Master Geek wmoore explains how to block 'em without an extension.
  1. Download and install Privoxy.
  2. Click on the Wrench icon in Chrome in the upper right corner.
  3. Choose options>Under The Hood>Change proxy settings.
  4. In the Internet Properties dialog's Connections tab, click on the LAN settings button.
  5. Check off "Proxy settings" and in the address setting add 127.0.0.1 and in the port 8118.
  6. If you have the option, you can also check off "Bypass proxy for local settings".
  7. Click "Ok", close Chrome and restart it.
