So far so good. It would be nice if the QUIT actually closed the program and cleared cache instead of it still open in the background using valuable resources. I like the customization to block all ads, although video ad placeholders still show on screen. It does not appear to load screens faster than other browsers making me think it still downloads the ad, but does not display it on the screen. My understanding that this is similar to the regular Adblock plus for the computer browsers.
The idea is to block ads and scripts. I do this because ads, and their associated scripts delay page loads and can move the content on the page around while you are trying to read. I had it at 5 but abp asked for a 5 star review again, and it's not a 5 anymore. There are new ads, or perhaps ads that are classified as non intrusive are getting through that will pop over content. This is recent. Most of the time the browser is aces.
I've been using this app for quite a while but I don't generally know what to say in reviews. The only real complaint I've ever had is a mildly annoying glitch that was fixed in a previous update anyway. Though, I do sometimes wonder about the logic of the optional system that allows unobtrusive ads. It seems like some of the ads blocked are pretty minor. Is this a matter of trackers hidden in the ad or something?
Brilliant. Bit slower than regular browsers but it makes sense in my admittedly amateurs eye. Filtering for ads and blocking them takes some processing and it's less than a second delay anyway. Keep up the good work! One thing though: Some sits forcibly redirect you to an add rather than opening up another tab (the latter which the browser blocks successfully). Any thoughts or updates planned for that?
It's a great browser and blocks the ads well. Unfortunately, it seems to compress images badly! For example, browse Google images and try to download an image, it saves a really low quality copy. If you open the same image in Chrome and download it, then Chrome saves the same image in decent quality. That's the only drawback to this browser, and why Chrome remains my default.
Since the update, one particular site I frequent will end up causing the software to crash (I assume it's either a script or memory use issue). This was something I experienced with Firefox w/ ABP plugin previously. I switched to ABP Browser at that time because it seemed more stable. Since this update was built with a more recent build of Firefox, that same instability is now seen.
- Updated Adblock Browser to the most recent version of Adblock Plus (ABP).
- Improved integration with Adblock Plus and provided more settings around ad blocking.
- Fixed a bug which caused the on-screen keyboard not to appear in certain situations.
- Solved several issues which caused the app to crash under specific circumstances.
- Merged to a newer version of Firefox 45.0.2.
