Google begins shoehorning ads into Chrome browser

Is this a deal-breaker for you?

Google has started to roll its own ads in the Chrome web browser. Is this a deal-breaker for you?

The ads appear at the top of the new-tab page and currently seem to be advertising Chrome OS-powered Chromebooks.

Here's what the ad looks like:

Note: I've not see the ad myself yet. maybe that's because I'm running the beta, or maybe Google is doing a limited roll-out of the ads.

So, I've got a couple of questions for Chrome users out there:

[poll id="713"]

[poll id="714"]

Personally, as long as the ads don't become intrusive or pushy (or crazy, seizure-inducing like the ones in Windows Live Messenger) I'm not that bothered. If it gets too bad then I might switch over to Chromium.
