the maintainer of the chromium-browser extension is no longer active on the forum - somebody else will need to take over

Instead of installing an ad-blocking plugin, you could edit your  /etc/hosts  file. This way it works for any program running on your box.
There are threads about this here on the forum.
This one in particular: http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,19361.msg119288.html
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)

this is a way .... but you need to keep the host file up to date... and it doesn't help against that some websites told you that you are used an unsupported browser and looks very strange...
