AdGuard website icon

I thought I read somewhere, that with the introduction of the browser extensions (AdGuard Assistant), the onscreen icon would disappear (place in one of four corners).
Am I mistaken, or am I missing an option?

I am running version release (CL-1.5.269) on macOS 10.15.5 (19F101).

Eventually, yes, the legacy AdGuard Assistant will be removed in favor of the new Browser Assistant browser extensions. Likely in the next major version they'll be removed.

Thanks for the swift reply, but call me confused ;-).
FYI: I'm a brand new lifetime Ad Guard user, so forgive me my ignorance...

So, I thought the introduction of the currently new assistants was called a major upgrade.
I was under the impression that before last update, the screen icon was the way to interact with AdGuard, and that is was replace with the AdGuard macOS statusbar icon/app, that has assistants in the form of browser extensions...

Not correct then?

PS: at home I use AdGuard DNS Family Protection. It being active is very nicely shown on this AdGuard DNS page. Feature request: would be nice that all AdGuard apps would have this indication on its main screen (on macOS, iOS, ...).
