    Is there any way to install extensions on Google Chrome on GTV? If not then is there some other way i can block all these random ads on websites? On some of the sites browsing is nigh impossible with all these ads and popups, would be great if there was some way to get rid of these. Thanks !

    No, there's no way to install extension on Google TV's version of Chrome. The way some people have been blocking those sites is by blacklisting the Advertisement delivery URLs on their routers. Also, you can use Mobile HTML transcoders like these:

    Hey eferz,

    Do you think that with the Revue update, The random websites with ads will be any different than the Sony version...??
    As in as many, and, blocking as well, or do you think the Revue will have a different way of handling it?

    I believe that since Chrome is a part of Google's baseline experience for Google TV that it will be the same on both systems.

    Basically, they read the HTML of a full site and transcode them into a Mobile friendly site. Which basically is very plain with little to no images and devoid of flash but very fast to load.
