Adblock Plus 3.5 for Chrome, Firefox and Opera released · 2019-03-13 04:00 by Manish Jethani
This release comes with significant performance improvements, enhanced support for the
$csp filter options, and a new Korean filter list.
- Overall CPU usage is down by ~60% since the last release:
- Blocking of network requests is now 5 times as fast on average (issues 6994, 7003, 7052, 7089, 7208, 7209, 7232, 7245, 7250 and 7265).
- Generation of the CSS style sheet for a document is now more than 10 times as fast on average and more than 1,000 times as fast for domains not occurring in any of the user’s filter list subscriptions (i.e. most domains) (issues 6956, 6957, 6989, 6997, 6999 and 7244).
- Extension badge updates to indicate the number of ads blocked are now at least 5-10% more efficient (issues 7253 and 7257).
$rewritefilter option can now take a value of the format
<name>is the name of a built-in resource (issue 7067).
- If there are multiple filters with the
$cspoption that match a URL, now all corresponding CSP headers are injected into the document (issues 7179 and 7243).
- Added a new Korean filter list (issue 7235).
- Fixed: Domain-based whitelisting did not work in
data:URI frames (issue 6953).
- Fixed: Element collapsing style sheets could linger after the frame was destroyed (issue 7104).
- Fixed: Critical notification animation did not stop when dismissed (issue 7077).
- Stopped using Shadow DOM v0 on older versions of Chromium that do not support user style sheets (issue 6998).
- Fixed: The “Block element” context menu option disappeared after initial use (issue 6948).
- Fixed: The “Block element” context menu option sometimes did not work on first use (issue 6493).
- Fixed: The “Block element” option did not appear in the extension popup for some websites (issue 5938).
