    After numerous Windows, Android and Mac releases, along with the introduction of Adguard DNS and Adguard Content Blocker, it is easy to forget about browser extensions. But we didn't! We are finally ready to present to you new version of Adguard browser extension. What's new? If you follow Adguard for Windows news, you've already heard about extended selectors and what's so useful about them. Chromium users who like to create custom filtering rules will be glad to see DevTools integration, and besides that there's a lot of other changes and fixes.

    [Added] Extended selector support #321, #322

    This is a technical term, but what hides behind it? With extended selectors support, we can much more easily create some rules that were very, very hard to create earlier. Notably, this concerns rules required to block such things as 'Sponsored posts' on Facebook etc.

    Chromium

    [Added] Integration with Chrome DevTools #5

    We added a custom sidebar panel to Chrome Developer tools 'Elements' tab. So now you can create and add rules directly from chromium devtools panel with detailed settings and preview functionality. This will be especially useful for filter developers and enthusiasts.
    More documentation on Chrome devtools can be found here: https://developer.chrome.com/devtools

    [Fixed] 'Wrong log format' error #285
    [Fixed] WebSocket connections are broken on poloniex.com #307
    [Fixed] Websockets are broken in old versions of Chrome #273
    [Fixed] WebSocket connections can't be blocked #279
    [Fixed] Console new tab issue #292
    [Fixed] 'Block Ads' selection doesn't work #277

    Safari

    [Added] $generichide support added to the converter #171

    Firefox

    [Fixed] Bug with element selection in FF #314

    Other changes

    [Added] Support for the :style pseudo class syntax #294
    [Changed] Adguard doesn't use proto property anymore #282
    [Changed] The way "Preview" works (when blocking element manually #286
    [Fixed] Assistant does not select iframe element properly in Touch UI #325
    [Fixed] French spelling error #288
    [Fixed] $elemhide rule was not applied correctly #107
    [Fixed] Constant blocked iframe "flickering" #301
    [Fixed] Adguard does not inject CSS into disqus iframe #223
    [Improved] "Page size" in User filter and whitelist increased to 200 entries #289

    Needs to be added that new version might not be available at Mozilla add-ons store, Opera store and Safari Extensions Gallery yet. It is due to the necessary review process that will inevitably take some time. But don't be upset, you can still download the extension directly from our GitHub repository.

    By the way, you can also discuss the new version in our blog.

    Still not showing up on my Safari 10 on Sierra. Shows 2.3.9. Problem on my side or a general behavior?

    Problem is with Apple taking huge amount of time to review our extensions. We are still waiting. Most recent versions are always available on GitHub: https://github.com/AdguardTeam/AdguardBrowserExtension/releases
