Stop Ads in Browser Google Chrome

I am using Mibbit's web browser version for IRC.  I believe I have narrowed down the ads on this site being the culprit of a massive amount of memory resources being hogged which is slowing down the entire browser.  I am on multiple monitors with Google Chrome's browser on both displays.  I am constantly going back and forth and the cursor is LAGGING.  

How can I block these ads with Google Chromes' settings?  I would really prefer not to have to install a 3rd party service to assist and am pretty set on Google Chrome going forward.

I realize there are stand alone IRC programs, but if I can block the ads and this in turn stops hogging the resources then I'm a happy camper.

Thanks in advance!

Chrome has nothing to stop Ads (last I checked), the most popular extension would be Adblock.
If you want a separate program there is Adfender to cover all browsers.

I went with AdBlock and this worked great!  Google Chrome > Settings > Extensions > Add extention > searched for AdBlock (free) > installed the extension.

Esta bien!

Thanks, again!
