re: Adblock Plus Removed From Google Play
I didn't bother installing Adblock on my newer machine, now I'm doing so. Most Android tablets can be upgrade to true open source Linux (telcom drivers are the glaring FCC allowed exception).
Google seems to have forgotten its motto not to be evil.
Seems "anything but Microsoft" is will give way to "anything but Google".

re: Adblock Plus Removed From Google Play
I started using chrome because it is currently the safest (as in least vulnerable to exploits) browser available.-Inadvertently-it-brought-me also closer to using other Google Apps.
But this type of "cyber-totalitarian" behavior has me look for an alternative browser now, and reminds me once more why I stayed clear of Google products for so long in the first place...

re: Adblock Plus Removed From Google Play
This is foolish as Google will end up indirectly encouraging use of third party repositories.- And if Google bans access to third party repositories, it takes away one of Android's bigger competitive advantages over iOS and Windows Mobile, and provides an opportunity for FirefoxOS and Ubuntu Mobile.
