New Release: Adblock Plus 3.7 · 2019-10-22 20:11 by Susie Concannon
Adblock Plus 3.7 for Chrome, Firefox, and Opera has been released.
We’re back with a new release! In ABP 3.7, you’ll notice several user interface (UI) updates and overall under the hood improvements, notably increased CPU (Central Processing Unit) performance.
We all know that ABP takes the hassle out of browsing the ad-riddled web. But did you know that when ABP block ads, you save battery life? Laptop users who also use ABP 3.7 can expect better CPU efficiency/longer battery life when browsing the web. That means more time spent looking at the latest and greatest cat memes, and less time searching for your laptop charger.
Here are some of the improvements we think you’ll find most useful.
Added recommended filter lists. Adblock Plus can do more than just block ads. Now, when a user clicks “Add a new filter list”, they will see a list of recommended filter lists including language filter lists, malware protection filter lists, anti-circumvention filter lists, privacy filter lists, and more.
ABP Tip: If you browse websites in multiple languages, you need to add the appropriate filter list for each of those languages. For example, if your browser default language is English, but you frequently read Spanish blogs, you’ll need to add the Spanish-language filter list.
Added dedicated fonts for Arabic and Thai languages. We’ve switched fonts to better support both Arabic and Thai languages. The new font for Arabic is Cairo, and the new font for Thai is Athiti. Source Sans Pro will still be used for all other languages.
Improved refresh option. Users can easily whitelist a website by clicking the Adblock Plus icon and toggling off “Block ads on:”. In order for the change to take effect, the page needs to be refreshed. We’ve made the “Refresh” button more prominent and included a brief explanation about why the refresh is necessary.
