Impact of Google Manifest V3

Hi,

I read this post in MalwareTips https://malwaretips.com/threads/the-death-of-webrequest-api-ubo-not-likely-at-least-for-now.89780/

I am currently using AdGuard's DNS filter (less than 30.000) rules, so I suppose filter is still useable when V3 gets implemented. I am using the Beta extension with Stealth mode enabled. Would stealth mode still be available after V3 is implemented (the poster Windows_Security guesses it will implemented the earliest in Q4 2020, probably later considering V2 is around for 5 years now).

Thx

It's a draft right now, so I wouldn't panic yet. If they finalize that draft, then start panicing. :p

Yes, AdGuard for Windows, AdGuard for Mac and AdGuard for Android would be unaffected by this change.

BTW, there's a chance Mozilla will adopt Manifest V3 too, at least they have interest in doing so. We'll have to see what happens with all the potential backlash.

Honestly, it will be interesting to see if Vivaldi (/other Chromium-based browsers will be affected by this). I truly hope not since I would switch to using Vivaldi fulltime instead of having to switch Firefox to continue to use Adguard.

It won't impact Chromium-based browsers that have their own built-in ad blocking function (eg Brave and Opera). The developers of Vivaldi have gone on record saying that they will do whatever they can to maintain things the way they are now: https://www.ghacks.net/2019/06/06/how-googles-anti-adblocking-draft-affects-other-chromium-based-browsers/
