Adblock Plus and (a little) more

First browser with Adblock Plus built-in released · 2006-09-29 01:58 by Wladimir Palant

The very first browser with Adblock Plus built-in was released today — K-MeleonCCF, thanks Hao Jiang. And that despite the fact that the development build used was marked EXPERIMENTAL and that it wasn’t tested at all in this variation of K-Meleon (unlike the regular K-Meleon it has tabs, and this release is actually the first version not to crash when Adblock Plus is installed). Well, I guess it still works better than Adblock that has been used before with absolutely minimal user interface integration. There is a number of issues to be solved however, so we will hopefully see K-MeleonCCF soon.

In unrelated news: CHIP (a German computer magazine, estimated 1.5 million readers) is running an article on Firefox 2.0 and will be publishing some Firefox extensions on their CD-ROM — including Adblock Plus. Since Firefox 2.0 will be released soon I’m assuming that this will be the November issue of the magazine. Update: It will appear in the December issue.
