Adblock Plus 1.0 for Internet Explorer released · 2013-08-13 17:15 by Wladimir Palant
We proudly present you the first Adblock Plus release for Internet Explorer! While there is still much room for improvement, we feel that the current version is ready to be used. It is compatible to any Internet Explorer version down to Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP with the following limitations:
- Adblock Plus currently doesn’t support Enhanced Protected Mode of Internet Explorer 10, we expect that to be resolved in a follow-up release soon.
- Metro mode Internet Explorer in Windows 8 and Internet Explorer in Windows RT currently cannot be supported, these are locked down environments that don’t allow any extensions.
Other than that we’ve resolved most of the issues our original development build was experiencing. The one issue remaining is the placement of the icon: Adblock Plus icon still shows up in the status bar and normally you will need to enable it manually to show it. Also, we are aware of some remaining inconsistencies in the way blocking and element hiding rules work in Internet Explorer compared to Firefox or Chrome, we will continue working on eliminating these.
