Re: The real reason

The popularity of ad-blockers means that a large number of people would simply stop using chrome. Blocking ads is more important than browser features.

Similarly, the adblockers ultimate weapon is not to support a browser, as few users wanting a blocker are going to trust anything built in by google.
