Install Adblock Plus for Google Chrome™

Major changes

  • Better blocking thanks to webRequest API (requires in Chrome 17).
  • Changed user interface for filter subscription management (an intermediate step towards porting our Firefox user interface).
  • Improved “Add filter” dialog, safe from being manipulated by the web page and with filter editing.
  • Filter data is being stored using File System API, file format identical to Firefox.
  • Using the same algorithm for filter subscription updates as in Firefox (proper handling of expiration intervals, download mirrors etc).
  • Added support for subscribing from web pages via abp: links (specifying a main subscription isn’t supported yet).
  • Proper handling of $third-party filter options, top-level domains like are now being considered.
  • No longer putting all our element hiding rules into the document’s DOM.
