Adblock Plus For Google Chrome Released With “Acceptable Ads” Feature

Google Chrome users, Adblock Plus has just released its AdBlock Plus 1.3 for Google Chrome plugin to the public. The plug-in was in beta-phase for a few months but the functionality is now up-to par with the Firefox variety. At The Tech Journal we aren’t huge fans of the plug-in and suggest you stay away, however we’ll continue to discuss key features of the plug-in.

One major update with Adblock 1.3 for Chrome the “acceptable ads” feature implanted. Ultimately, adblock realizes that some advertising isn’t considered annoying — including static ads that don’t affect the web-browsing experience. Those that are against all-sorts of advertisements can completely disable this function if desired.

Adblock 1.3 also comes equipped with a ‘first-run’ page to explain the basics of the plug-in. This will only run on new installations or updates to the plug-in. The remainder of the updates mainly relate to bug-fixes of the previous version:

  • Added support for element hiding exceptions.
  • Made use of new security features in new Google Chrome versions.
  • Worked around Chrome issue 49001 (some websites breaking due to our element hiding).
  • Fixed a data corruption bug that would sometimes corrupt the filters.
  • Removed sending of the Do-Not-Track header now that Chrome is capable of doing it itself.
Once again, websites earning their revenue from the provided advertisements and these types of plug-ins can affect a websites income. We best suggest you stay away from the plug-in.
