    I get notifications of new versions on Android but don't know how to install them.
    They don't go through normal update procedure, so they must be betas...

    Hi!

    What's wrong with update? Is there any error during the update process?

    Ah ha! Playing tricks on me again! :D
    Actually, when notification would come, i'd read the first paragraphs of changelog, then click update via "hamburger" icon and list would be updated but not the program.
    For the first time, i've read all the way down through the changelog and clicked "update" at the bottom.
    Everything is okay now. ;)

    (btw, i have Opera and Firefox installed but still getting ads).

    You mean AG does not block some ads? Which exactly?

    Talking Android here of course...
    Take www.lapresse.ca for example.
    Ads show up everywhere as usual (not so with extensions added on browsers in Windows).

    Huh, no ads in android chrome (btw, how is it for you in chrome?). Also I need to know more about your app configuration. What's different from the default?

    Do believe all defaults that come with installation.
    "Show useful ads" is enabled - but i leave it so since it states "for example, context-based ads in search engines".
    So, i presume it should block ads for browsers (even Chrome).

    Yep, of course it should. So, do you see ads on that website in chrome?

    Correction: ads show up only in Opera, not in Chrome or Firefox.
    Why not in Opera too, after all, it is Chrome based?

    I suppose the problem may be in Opera compression as Adguard cannot decrypt compressed traffic.

    You are probably right.
    Opera is different - especially with "turbo mode" in Windows (my recent experience).
    For some reason i could not view a specific webpage (too much traffic i was told) but with "turbo mode" enabled, Opera was the only browser that worked!
    Tried Chrome, Slimjet and Firefox. Nothing else could do the trick.
