How to stop pop ups


AC Question

Hi guys, Im beyond frustrated with this. I have a nexus 6P and i've gone chrome settings and enabled block pop ups but thy still come through. I have downloaded ad blocker which is great but I do like to use the google news and interests feed which I believe defaults to chrome. This means when im reading the news or checking the weather I get pop ups like 'congratulations you won' etc. Is there anything I can do about this? Is it possible to change google news default browser to ad blocker? any advise would be greatly appreciated.
