Dear beta testers! Finally I am ready to announce 5.9 beta release. Version 5.9 brings a large number of changes and fixes in Adguard. Parental control Since the program was created we have received many requests from users for implementing the “Parental Control” in it. Many parents found Adguard helpful, because a child didn’t see inappropriate advertising. Now, in addition to blocking such "adult" ads, we have added new features to protect your child. Password protection You can protect the program and its settings with a password. Without knowing the password, disabling of Adguard is impossible. Parental control settings SafeSearch SafeSearch excludes adult resources from the search results on popular search engines (Yandex, Google, Rambler). Prohibition of executable files download If this option is enabled, Adguard will prohibit download of any executable (.exe) files to your computer. This will protect your child from installation of any programs. The sensitivity level The sensitivity level determines what sites your child will have access to. The higher the level, the fewer sites will be available. Extensions In version 5.9 you can install extensions (user scripts). Their mission is extension of the functionality of websites. How exactly will the functionality be expanded depends on the user script. This can be a pop-up blocking, flash queries blocking, possibility of downloading music and video from social networks and much, much more. Adguard comes with a set of our own extensions. You can find and install an interesting extension on userscript.org or even write it by yourself. At the moment Adguard is the only program that allows to use user scripts in any browser. We plan to bundle one more extension to the next beta version. It will be our FlashBlock implementation. Video Ads blocking In this version Adguard can block most of the Video ads. We faced a problem in previous versions: simple video ads blocking can cause video player shutdown. That’s why we sometimes had to add online movie sites in exclusion list. Now Adguard can block this type of ads correctly and without problems. The thing is that the majority of video advertising is subject to the standards of "the International Bureau of Advertising" (iab.net). In version 5.9 Adguard learned to recognize and convert queries that use these standards.
