What's the reason of the not to have been removed Adblock by the Google?

As you know Adblock is blocking the ads which is the Google's important source of income. Adblock is in the Google's itself extensions market.

So why they don't just remove it?

Because it's technically a useful tool for protecting computers from malware attack as long as it isn't abused. I don't use it on my home computer, but we've got it installed in the workplace for that reason.

Also, pretty sure it collects all kinds of useful information.

Your thread title is painful to read, but if I'm understanding your question correctly, you're asking why Google doesn't remove adblockers from the Google store. Correct?

Try to visualize a world in which they did so. Try to imagine the outrage there would be if Google manipulated the content of their extensions store for revenue-gathering purposes. It just wouldn't be worth the bad PR.

In addition, most of the popular adblockers in the store have a 'safe/trusted ads' mode - which Google encourages people to use - whereby ads are still displayed but the harmful and untrustworthy ones are blocked. I imagine Google sees that as a decent enough compromise.

Because if google did that then every single person who used adblock on chrome would immediately switch to firefox.

Google chrome is good, but not good enough to justify constantly seeing ads when using it when there are other services available.

I have to agree here. Chrome is a light-weight Ferrari. It performs swiftly...so long as it isn't bogged down. If they bog it down, people will jump ship for the muscle car.

Thanks for the all answers. I'm new learning, but can you tell me the mistake in the title? And the correct way. I can't see it. With this way i can learn:)

Prepositions, prepositions. And also adverbs. You use adverbs as descriptors when presenting actions, events. "I'm just learning". "New" is an adjective. Though it can be used as an adverb, you're doing it wrong. Use it to describe objects, not to add a timestamp to an action.

Why hasn't Google removed Adblock from Google's app store?

To answer your question, we're big believers in the free market. Every Walmart sells guns and condoms. It does not matter if the market owners do not approve of an item's purpose. If it is not illegal then the market will provide. To remove it would be subversive, manipulative, which is frowned upon by users as well as law enthusiasts, I.E. lawyers and judges. Google could very well get sued for having restrictive marketplace standards. They could lawyer up but again this would cost money, more than they would lose in ad revenue by simply providing the app in the first place.

Ya got me there. I'll never understand that one. I understand censoring the occasional F bomb but the CDs from Walmart go well beyond that. Basic radio is less censored and everyone listens to that.

Eeyup...

Welcome to the United States of America, friend. It is a bizarre, nonsensical, morally and ethically confounding place filled with greed, obesity, consumerism, bigotry-fueled equality, and bullheaded patriots who frown upon patriotism.

Enjoy your stay.[1]

They'll let you kill, they'll let you fuck, but they won't let you listen to songs about killing or fucking.

Title can be : why don't google just remove adblock?

If Google blocks the AdBlock Chrome Extension, the users of these extensions would probably stop using Google Chrome and go to Firefox. Pushing people away from the Chrome browser for an arguably small amount of revenue will cause their "use us for everything" product strategy to fail.

Google has done this. They removed AdNauseam because it interfered with their revenue model.

Fallow:

Google has done this. They removed AdNauseam because it interfered with their revenue model.

From their site: "AdNauseam quietly clicks on every blocked ad, registering a visit on ad networks' databases. As the collected data gathered shows an omnivorous click-stream, user tracking, targeting and surveillance become futile." No wonder why. This completely undermines CPC advertising.
