Google may break ad blockers (and by possibly Malwarebytes extension beta)

In case you were not aware, it has been reported recently that Google planning changes to Chrome that could break ad blockers.

This comes on the heels of Chrome's limited release of their own in-house ad blocker which is to be released in July of this year.

Whether this is an anti-competitive move on their part (and likely to push users away from products that would be more likely to block their own ads and tracking/telemetry servers) or just a coincidence I do not know, but either way it may mean that Malwarebytes may need to make changes to remain compatible with Chrome going forward, assuming they aren't already using a method compatible with the upcoming changes (apparently Adblock Plus is already compatible, though not all ad blocking extensions are).

We are aware of the proposed changes, our extension will continue to work with these changes without any lapse in functionality. 

More details on this will be posted in coming days.
