Default Inefficient blocking of advertisements by Chrome

Currently, most of the extensions for Chrome don't block download of ads. They block the display.

I came across this:
Star if you still want to see this happen; Issue 35897 tracks the
desire to get this accomplished, as opposed to 16932's specific API which seems to
have been dropped. Right now our 400 or so votes are being split among two Issues.

So those interested in getting ads blocked from being downloaded can vote here: Issue 35897: Need some way to declaratively block external resources

Please note that one should only click on the star and not post any type of comment that is not truly enabling or run the risk of being ridiculed by one of the more immoderate moderators! I have recently had that experience, no doubt mea culpa.

I'm voting for it.
AdThwart still does a good job despite the limitations.

Really looking forward to NoScript for Chrome.
