Chrome will adopt extension engine that can “break” ad blockers in 2023

Google has announced that the transition to Manifest V3, the next version of its extension engine for Chrome that will succeed Manifest V2, will start in 2023. For those unfamiliar with the subject, this could mean that the users will not be able to use their ad blockers in the browser.

Among several privacy and security improvements promised by Manifest V3, ad blocking extensions will be affected by an API called the “declarativeNetRequest”, which significantly reduces the amount of ad-related links that can be blocked on a website and could “break” several tools in this category.

The “declarativeNetRequest” API allows blocking of a primitive and not very complex list of URLs related to ads on a web page, replacing the dynamic filtering used by current solutions with the “WebRequest” API of Manifest V2.

The new version will be limited to just 30,000 entries, while the current version is capable of utilizing more than 300,000. This would make ad blockers nonfunctional — or even unusable — in Manifest V3.

Chrome 99 now prevents the release of extensions based on Manifest V2, but you can still use them normally. In January 2023, Google will begin the transition by disabling Manifest V2 in Beta, Dev, and Canary versions of Chrome 112. should take place in the stable channel in June 2023 with Chrome 115.

Extensions based on the previous version of the platform will be hidden from the Chrome Web Store in June 2023, and in January 2024, they will be completely removed — at least, from the public version of the browser. To ensure longer-term support for your applications, corporate users will be able to continue using Manifest V2 until early 2024.

Despite the problems for adblockersManifest V3 promises more security to users by limiting access to personal network information and forcing developers to include all the functionality of their extensions in the tool itself, preventing them from executing code remotely and outside the “supervision” of Google.
