Adblock Plus 1.2.1 for Android released · 17 days ago by Wladimir Palant

Install Adblock Plus for Android

If you already have Adblock Plus for Android, it should notify you about the update shortly and download it automatically.

Important note: We strongly encourage you to install this release as soon as possible, it fixes a security issue present in all previous Adblock Plus for Android versions.

In addition to that, this fixes a bug in the previous version that caused development builds to be offered as updates for the release version. Because of that issue most Adblock Plus for Android users are using development builds now so this release will be offered as an update for development builds as well. This unfortunately also includes users who explicitly chose to install development builds — if that’s true for you please install Adblock Plus 1.2.1.319 for Android manually to get back to the development build channel.

Adblock Plus for Safari Beta released · 88 days ago by Sebastian Noack

Install Adblock Plus for Safari

I spent the past months porting Adblock Plus to Safari. And by now, we’ve got something that is stable enough to release as a beta. Adblock Plus for Safari uses mostly the same codebase as Adblock Plus for Chrome/Opera. So it has the same features and every improvement we do in the future for either browser extension will automatically land in the extension for the other browsers.

Adblock Plus 1.7 for Chrome and Opera released · 122 days ago by Thomas Greiner

Install Adblock Plus 1.7 for Chrome
Install Adblock Plus 1.7 for Opera (Opera 17 or higher required)

This release includes significant changes to the icon and the icon popup. It is the next step in redesigning the entire UI after releasing new versions of our first-run page on all platforms earlier this year.

Adblock Plus Icon Popup

The redesigned popup allows us to seamlessly integrate features such as the blocked ads counter and the emergency notifications. Users who want to hide the icon can now right-click on it and hide it from there which is why we removed the related option from the Options page. The icon can be brought back on the browser’s Extensions page.

Adblock Plus 1.2 for Android released · 141 days ago by Felix Dahlke

Install Adblock Plus for Android

If you already have Adblock Plus for Android, it should notify you about the update shortly and download it automatically.

The major change in this release is under the hood: We’re now using libadblockplus, the same library powering ABP for Internet Explorer, instead of the custom integration of outdated ABP core code we had before.

This allowed us to implement Acceptable Ads in Android, and it’ll allow us to implement other missing features such as domain-based whitelisting in the near future. Note that element hiding is still disabled, so as with the last few versions, you might see some ads that are not acceptable. We’re working on this.

Finally, ABP for Android has been translated into 13 additional languages, including Japanese and Italian.

Adblock Plus 1.6.2 for Opera released · 144 days ago by Wladimir Palant

Install Adblock Plus 1.6.2 for Opera (Opera 17 or higher required). Please note that it might take some time until the new version is reviewed an actually becomes available.

This release fixes an issue with size limitations for data storage in Opera, after a while filter changes would no longer be saved. With this release Adblock Plus for Opera uses the same data storage approach as Adblock Plus for Chrome. Note that this won’t work in Opera 15, a more recent Opera version is required.

There will be no corresponding Adblock Plus for Chrome release, this change is irrelevant for Chrome users.
