Looking for an AdBlock replacement for Chrome, I found AdSweep, which is no longer maintained. Any alternatives?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Problem is, it's not in Google's interest, being an advertiser, to have an ad blocker in its browser. – hasen Aug 17 '09 at 10:30
True, but don't Google have a plugin architecture? – ripper234 Aug 17 '09 at 10:40
An extension system is being developed, and yes, they are considering ad blocking to be a valid and important use case:… (see under "use cases" -> "content filtering") – hasseg Aug 17 '09 at 10:43

See my answer to NoScript plugin for Google Chrome?:

Check out Privoxy. Lifehacker has a great guide on how to set it up.

Privoxy supports stripping ads, Javascript and nasty pieces of HTML, as well as string-replacement for any web browser. I have used it in the past and I did not notice a speed difference.

Check Chrome Beta Adblock extension

SWWare Iron is a build of Chrome that includes an ad blocker.

It also includes more recent versions of Webkit and the Javascript engine than the shipping version of Chrome.

You could also consider running privoxy locally to do the filtering.
