AdBlock for Chrome 3.0 is here!
Oops! The release didn't go as smoothly as our testing led us to expect it would. A couple of bugs fluttered in while our backs were turned:
We forgot to change the name from "AdBlock development build" back to "AdBlock" when we moved from development to release.
- If you disable Allow some non-intrusive advertising in AdBlock's options, GENERAL tab, the setting isn't saved. The workaround is to go to the FILTER LISTS tab and disable the Acceptable Ads list there.
A bug fix release is under review by Google and should be out today.
And now, here's the original announcement:
Today we released a major upgrade to AdBlock! AdBlock 3.0 includes some great new features:
We now support the $genericblock and $generichide filter options, allowing us to whitelist the "generic" ad many sites use to check for ad blockers, while still blocking actual ads.
We've improved editing custom filters. Now duplicate entries are automatically removed, allowing AdBlock to process your custom filters more efficiently.
The AdBlock button in the extension bar now turns green, not gray, when AdBlock is paused.
We moved the "Show all requests" feature to the Developer Tools. To get there, right-click a page and select Inspect, then select the AdBlock tab.
Before we were limited to 5 MB of local storage for settings, subscribed lists, and custom filters. Now we're using unlimited storage, allowing you to subscribe to more lists and have more custom filters.
All your favorite features are still there as well:
You can allow ads on individual YouTube channels to support your favorite YouTubers!
Easily block rogue ads or other annoyances using our manual blocking wizard.
Pause AdBlock and whitelist a page or an entire site with one click!
