Wishlist. Your ideas and suggestions for future versions of the program.
Excellent program so far. My one question/wish would relate to Adguard being able to filter ad's on secure(https) sites. for example in removing the ad's in gmail or the +1 widgets in google results. is this possible to implement ?
We have this feature in mind, but it is not our first priority.
There is a number of problems with filtering secure connections.
First is your privacy. It is not good when software can see the data transferred through secure connection.
So filtering https will be optional and it will be disabled by default.
Second is some technical problems. We can solve them, but we need time to make it properly.
thank you for the prompt reply. glad to see that you leave the final decision up to the end user and that it will be an option.
Is it possible to add an "Add rule" option to the Adguard assistant ? currently the only way to manually add a rule is by using the "Select page element" option in the assistant, but in some cases the assistant cannot select the page element that you desire to remove an example are the "upgrade to remove ads" spaces leftover in grooveshark.com
and also while on the subject of the assistant, why is it that sometimes specific elements cannot be selected like in the case above ?
1. grooveshark: it could be on some "complex" sites like grooveshark. We embed assistant into each web site, it is ok for 99%, but not for all.
2. "Add rule": what should assistant do when you click "Add rule"?
You can add rules to the user filter manually in "Settings" - "Ad Blocker". The problem is that you should be good at CSS and HTML to do this.
1. The assistant is present on grooveshark and most elements on the webpage are selectable using the "Select page element" option. however, there are some elements that cannot be selected by using the "Select page element" option
so my question is why doesn't the "Select page element" option work when confronted with such elements ? and can the same be made more sensitive in order to counter these stubborn elements ?
2. When you click the "Add rule" option in the assistant, a dialog box like the one created when you use the "Select page element" option would appear
After selecting your desired blocking method, you would get the next dialog(element hiding in this case)
where one would be able to create a rule in an easier more visual way than using the current method in the user filters section. you would be able to preview changes when using the element hiding dialog and so determine whether your custom rule is working as you expect.
The problem is that grooveshark web page really consists of a number different pages composed together.
Assistant is working in context of one of these webpages, not all.
This is interesting, never thought about assistant in this way.
I have added a feature request №940.
understood, though grooveshark in this case was an example of some sites where i have noticed the "Select page element" not being able to select some elements on the page. is there any way that the sensitivity of that particular option of the assistant can be increased ? so that even when presented with such complex cases as grooveshark the assistant will be up to the task(what i have in mind as a perfect implementation of the "Select page element" option would be something close to the "Inspect element" tool in opera from which no element can hide)
thank you for the positive acknowledgement, i hope to see this come to pass in a later version of Aguard
We have a plan of improving Adguard assistant and as I know this is possible to make it work normally with such complex websites.
But it is difficult to give an ETA on this particular feature.
good to hear as the assistant and especially the "Select page element" option is what makes Adguard stand out.
Updated Adguard recently, i had created some user filters under the previous installation, after the update i was surprised to see that my user created filters were gone. i realize that there is an option to export them but would it be possible to preserve them when updating or at the very least offer an option to automatically export them when Adguard is updating ?
Update from 5.2 to 5.3 version should have preserved your user filters. What version of Adguard has you before updating?
was using version 5.2.283.1827
Can you make an option that is password-protected for hiding serial number?
That would be good for companies and schools where users can steal keys for using them at home or even sharing them with other users over the Internet.
From the other side -- users often need to know the license key. What should they do if email with license is missing?
How other software vendors solve this problem? Do you have any examples of such functions?
Yeah, I know, but imagine this - you have a library with 20 pcs and they are being used by 500 random users every day. What's the possibility that some users will steal serial number? Pretty high, right? So it would be good if you could password-protect License tab if you want.
We want to do the following:
Every buyer gets a private cabinet on our site where he can manage his licenses (see the list of activated devices, detach the license from the computer, etc).
So event if serial number has been stolen - you could detach it from the bad guy's computer.
Wow, great! That's even better!
