Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Adblock Plus 1.3 for Google Chrome™ released · 2012-10-27 00:38 by Wladimir Palant

Install Adblock Plus for Google Chrome™

Major changes

  • Adblock Plus for Chrome is now officially out of beta, its functionality and stability are comparable to Adblock Plus for Firefox. The user interface is still lacking, we are working on that.
  • Some acceptable ads are now allowed by default (Adblock Plus for Firefox had this for almost a year already, easy to disable, see full explanation).
  • Added a first-run page (only shows up once for each user – either on new install or after update to Adblock Plus 1.3 from an older version).
  • Better performance now that we rely exclusively on the webRequest API (Chrome 17 and below are no longer supported).
  • Added support for element hiding exceptions.
  • Made use of new security features in new Google Chrome versions.
  • Worked around Chrome issue 49001 (some websites breaking due to our element hiding).
  • Fixed a data corruption bug that would sometimes corrupt the filters.
  • Removed sending of the Do-Not-Track header now that Chrome is capable of doing it itself.
  • Source code license is the GNU General Public License v3.0 instead of the Mozilla Public License now.

    Ads over the decades acts more like a Virus than just sale pitches. Ads began being yelled by the mouths of men and small boys on the street, then it spread in to News Papers, then they found their way on to the Radio then on to TV and Sky.
    Yet still the virus was not done, it still had other things to infect, it found its way on to the World Wide Web and the Internet.

    Suddenly they are now in every Mobile Device from Cell Phones to Ipads and more. Where else will this virus go from here onwards?

    Thank goodness that Adblock Plus was created, a vaccine to stop the spread of this advirus.

    Keep up the good work Adblock, we need you more than ever before, as the advirus finds more devices and ways to annoy us.
