Hello there.
My question is simple, i want to block the popup that appears on a lot of websites in chrome. Popup that show "the possibility to use the existing app", or "to connect", etc...
Popups so difficult to close because of a tiny cross!
You can look at the screenshot to understand what I mean (I already use adaway, that's why the popup is empty).

Adblock is the same thing as adaway.
And the popup will still be displayed.
It's something made with Java or something (I don't know how it works), and it's not an ad.

Try to find from which advertiser that popup comes from. Is there a link or a name below or above the ad? If not, click on the ad and see the top address before it redirects you to the actual ad. Many advertisers have a redirect URL before taking you the advert.

Anyway, once you get that URL, actually just the domain name, you can then use AdBlock and list that URL/domain in the blocked list.

Certain custom roms, have built in ad blocking features that work on apps including chrome. Otherwise I don't know if your idea is possible as the source of the ad is the same as the site.

Thanks for replying, but actually it's not an "ad". (It's an information delivered by the website to say "create an account" or "download the app or continue viewing the website".)
When it is, it's already blocked with Adaway and I have a blank window above the main website.
I saw an article about that, I can't remember the name of how it works or the way to block it....
Maybe it's possible only on desktop Chrome...
