    v1.4.1 (377)

    IMPORTANT UPDATE: compatibility with Chrome 59 and newer. The changes are few, but crucial.

    [Fixed] local.adguard.com certificate is considered invalid by Chrome v59 #183

    It may not seem like much, but without this change, Adguard would be partially incompatible with the newest Chrome versions. Needless to say, Chrome is one of the most popular browsers among Mac users, so it is hard to overstate the importance of this fix.

    [Changed] Bundle ID for Waterfox app #164

    v1.4.0

    The Christmas came early this year for Adguard for Mac users - a new version comes out today :) It significantly improves ad blocking, namely introducing Extended CSS support and several new modifiers. Networking and UI have undergone some fixing and tweaking too, so Adguard will become more stable and easy in use.

    Ad blocking

    [Added] Extended CSS support #109, #120

    This is a very important addition in terms of future (and present) possibilities that it opens for ad blocking. Extended CSS is a module for applying CSS styles with extended selection properties. Basically, it means that we will be able to select and, therefore, block some elements that we would not be able to block otherwise. Notably, this concerns such things as 'Sponsored posts' on Facebook.

    [Added] $important modifier #132

    This new addition is an significant one, but mostly relevant for creators of custom filter rules. With it's help you can give certain rules higher priority.

    [Added] $websocket modifier #131
    [Changed] Updated default HTTPS exclusions list #124
    [Fixed] $empty modifier behaviour #108, #143
    [Fixed] Latin extended symbol in a filter rule interferes with filtering #134
    [Fixed] $replace rule can't be applied along with the other rules #133

    Networking

    [Changed] HTTPS is now used for safebrowsing requests #148
    [Changed] WoSign and StartCom certificates are now distrusted #141
    [Changed] New separate server is used now for filter updates #139
    [Fixed] Kernel panic issue #106
    [Fixed] Inability to apply inline style #142
    [Fixed] Excessive CPU load #135
    [Fixed] Safebrowsing check algorithm #148
    [Fixed] Unknown pseudo class error #154
    [Fixed] $replace rules break content charset #147
    [Fixed] Adguard compatibility with Opera built-in VPN #123, #130
    [Fixed] Adguard blocks the page from loading if /etc/hosts has incorrect records #111
    [Improved] Content injection algorithm #119
    [Improved] Adguard styles are now protected from removal #149

    UI

    [Added] Hotkeys for filters management #9, #128
    [Changed] "Check filter updates" action moved to settings menu #116
    [Changed] CMD+Backspace key combination can now be used to delete filters from the filter list #9
    [Fixed] Incorrect filter is displayed in "Filtering Log" #129
    [Fixed] $replace rules are now displayed correctly in the filtering log #150
    [Improved] Allowed pasting mulitple rules at once in filter area #126

    Is there a minor update out for 1.4.0? I just got an update, and the funny thing is that it required an password to unlock during installation

    I am expiriencing simular issues. For example with Facebook when I watch videos in my feed they just freez so I exit out of safari, like completely close it, but facebook traffic still showing as going through Adguard full force even if Safari completely closed. YouTube performance questionable, sometimes videos just get stuck in the beginning of the playback.

    Switching Adguard on and off helps remedy the issue.

    GlimmerBlocker worked way better for me, I might switch.

    Got it. Then it's a bad sign, really. I wonder, could it be some kind of a compatibility issue with Little Snitch? Do you experience these issue with Little Snitch completely disabled?

    And now I wonder what was the issue. It's just this sort of mysterious issues tend to return sometimes.

    I wonder, could it be caused by the order of Adguard and Little Snatch startup?

    I just uninstalled this version of AG with the minor update and returned to the previous one, and guess what, the suggested postings on Facebook is reduced to almost NONE!!!!

    Edit: Its back to bleeding suggested posting as much as before

    @JohnK hi, there was a problem indeed. We added a new rule to fight them just now, try to update filters and see if these posts are gone.
