Why do people here simply believe one commenter claiming Google ads are 'unobtrusive'? That is simply not true.
And as for the argument that you have a choice in using Chrome so blocking competitor ads is OK. I think they'll counter-argue that the adblock arrived long after first roping in people into using Chrome.
Plus apart from legal action there is also the chance the other players are going to deliberately think of a way to **** over Google in retaliation, like making deals that sites can only carry their ads or something.

LOL! Yeah pretty much.

This is the advertisers own doing. They went with highly intrusive ads and strangely enough people started blocking all ads(who would have seen that coming), even the unintrusive ones.

Google needs to get people back on-side so that they are willing to accept at least some ads. A partial adblocker that only allows tamer ads through is better for Google in the long run. If the ads are passive enough, people won't bother installing an all out adblocker that will block Google's ads along with everything else.

Is it anti-competitive? Who cares! I refer you to Edzieba above.

The advertising arms race stepping waaaaay over the line, with the types of intrusive ads mentions in the news piece, is why I use an ad blocker - it was our nuclear option - they hurt themselves. If I could be guaranteed no intrusive ads, I'd drop ad block without hesitation.

It could be a great tool to make advertisers step back from the really annoying ads, however, I seriously doubt Google is going to play fair with this.
