A solution to this for now is http://www.privoxy.org/

1.) Install Privoxy
2) Click on the Wrench icon in Chrome in the upper right corner
3.) Choose options>Under The Hood>Change proxy settings
4.) A windows box pops up, choose LAN settings (at least this is what it's called in Vista)
5.) Check off "Proxy settings" and in the address setting add127.0.0.1 and in the port 8118
6.) If you have the option, you can also check off "Bypass proxy for local settings"
7.) Click "Ok", close chrome and restart it. 

Tada. Enjoy.

The Privoxy workaround isn't needed anymore, the real Adblock Plus (the one we know from Firefox) is now available as a Chrome extension. You can download Chrome Adblock Plus from the official website or the Chrome Webstore.
