AdGuard Assistant

AdGuard Assistant is a handy tool that helps you manage filtering right from the browser. With its aid you are able to manually block any element, whitelist or report the page, or see the website's security report — all without having to leave the current page.

This is the first Assistant release in its own separate repository. Previously we used to include all the Assistant changes in the respective Adguard for Windows releases.

A bunch of Assistant-related bugs have been fixed, and also worth mentioning the adding of a `dev` build that you are able to install now if you so desire.

[Added] A `dev` build #61

This is essentially the most recent version of Assistant you can get. It is being updated with every single commit that is made. To install the `dev` build, download the Assistant userscript from here:
