Even though Google Chrome is the world’s most popular Internet browser with a monstrous share of the market, it does occasionally have problems. The latest issue to hit Chrome is one that has been causing users quite a bit of stress as it likes to strike at random and doesn’t seem to have any actual solution or cause at first glance. The problem in question prevents websites from loading normally when opened in Chrome, with most getting stuck in an endless loading loop which looks very similar to a slow connection or Internet drop out.

Although everything about this problem may have you thinking there is something wrong with Google Chrome, you are actually incorrect, as the issue's real cause is everyone's favourite Chrome extension Adblock.

As an alternative to Adblock and Adblock Plus, the next best option is Ublock Origin.  Ublock Origin is a top-notch alternative Adblocker and the most popular ad blocker on Firefox, so you know you are in good hands.

I’ve been using both between Firefox and Chrome for a long time and can’t distinguish the difference between them, as they both do their job without any issues. Of course, if you don’t mind some ads for a while you can go without an ad blocker extension.
