Adblock Plus 3.8: Support your favorite content creators
Whitelisting gets more comfortable
Cologne, 19 February 2020 – Adblock Plus 3.8 for Chrome, Firefox and Opera has been released. The new version includes a feature that helps users to whitelist a single article or Youtube video with just a click instead of whitelisting an entire website. Adblock Plus 3.8 is available for the new Microsoft Edge as well and has moved from beta to the full version.
Adblock Plus’ mission is to give users control over what they see online. Of course, that always included the option to not block ads on specific websites, but this feature becomes even more convenient with the new version. Previously, users had to remember to turn Adblock Plus on again each time they visited other parts of the website if they didn’t want to see loads of blinking advertisements.
Now whitelisting is more comfortable and users don’t have to think about re-activating their ad blocker anymore. Additionally, users maybe don’t want to support the whole website, but only a dedicated content piece on sites like Youtube. Both issues have been solved with the new version. This is a feature that the community wished for and Adblock Plus has listened to their feedback.
Speaking of listening and feedback: Getting in touch with our users is incredibly valuable for a company that is so closely linked to the Open Source Community, and we want to give Adblock Plus users even more possibilities to communicate with us and tell us where we can get better. Thus we have included an option to contact our support team directly.
It was always possible to contact user support when it came to advertisements that were not blocked, but it was not possible to give feedback on the extension itself. With Adblock Plus 3.8, we want to get in touch with our users even more, but we also want to improve every single bit and byte of our extension beyond ad blocking.
