Notifications in Adblock Plus · 2013-07-23 16:20 by Felix Dahlke

We’re adding a new feature to Adblock Plus: Notifications.

The reason is that we sometimes need to notify users about serious issues without requiring them to update Adblock Plus. The worst-case scenario is that some users cannot receive automatic updates and we will use this feature to help the users update Adblock Plus manually. This will hopefully never happen for most users though.

We’re also planning to use it for other things, but sparingly. For example to ask a small set of users to participate in a new survey, should we ever run one again.

For now, this is only implemented in Firefox and Chrome, but we’re planning to bring it to all platforms. Firefox development build users should have it as of today, Chrome development build users should get it tomorrow. We have put up a test message for development build users, to make sure the feature works properly before we roll it out to everyone.

Subscription downloads refactoring · 2013-07-17 15:25 by Wladimir Palant

A large batch of changes landed in Adblock Plus 2.3.0.3689 for Firefox as well as Adblock Plus 1.5.0.957 for Chrome and Opera. These implement most of the proposal to simplify subscription downloads (updating documentation still outstanding) and part of the proposal to improve forward compatibility of filters. For users, nothing should change — subscriptions should update as usually and manual subscription updates should work as they did before. There is a bunch of changes for subscription authors however:

New first-run page · 2013-05-29 22:50 by Wladimir Palant

Starting with Adblock Plus 2.2.5a.3659 for Firefox and Adblock Plus 1.4.1.942 for Chrome we have a new first-run page:

This is a further improvement from the first-run page we already had in Chrome, now we finally have the same page in the Firefox extension as well. In addition to a more concise explanation of acceptable ads, the idea was to provide an overview of what Adblock Plus can do and allow turning on optional features easily. We are still planning to tweak the buttons and a few minor things but other than that the design is final — the release is supposed to happen in two weeks.

The first-run page comes up only during the initial installation of the extension. In Firefox (unlike in Chrome) uninstalling and reinstalling the extension doesn’t remove the data and the first-run page doesn’t appear again. If you want to see it without resetting Adblock Plus you can copy chrome://adblockplus/content/ui/firstRun.html into the location bar in Firefox or chrome-extension://ldcecbkkoecffmfljeihcmifjjdoepkn/firstRun.html in Chrome (the latter works only for the development builds, the address in the release build is different).

Improvements to pop-up blocking in Chrome · 2013-03-05 15:51 by Wladimir Palant

Turns out that our previous release candidate wasn’t catching all the pop-ups. We’ve improved the approach in Adblock Plus for Google Chrome 1.3.4.919, that’s the new release candidate.

Pop-up blocking for Chrome · 2013-03-04 12:55 by Wladimir Palant

We’ve had pop-up blocking support in Firefox for quite a while already, starting with the 1.3.4.918 development build the same functionality is now available for Chrome. Again, this is to complement the built-in pop-up blocker for the cases where it fails, not to replace it. By now the subscription authors added filters for the most notorious unwanted pop-ups so these should be blocked immediately.

This is a release candidate for Adblock Plus 1.4 for Google Chrome which is scheduled for release next Tuesday (2013-03-12).
