Improved experimental builds · 2011-09-29 11:50 by Wladimir Palant
The experimental development builds starting with Adblock Plus for Google Chrome 184.108.40.2064 will disable the “old” blocking functionality now, only the new webRequest API will be used for blocking. This improves performance and memory use, it also makes sure that issues with dynamically loaded images no longer happen. I can only see one side-effect: blocked images are no longer collapsed, instead you will see a “broken image” placeholder.
Also, experimental builds will now appear as “Adblock Plus for Google Chrome (Beta) experimental build” in the extensions list, this way you can always check whether you are running the experimental or the “normal” build.
