AdGuard for Mac: version 1.2.0

Now some good news for Mac users – here is an update of Adguard for OS X.

Adguard for Mac 1.2.0

This new version brings a lot of very important changes to Adguard for Mac. Most viable changes are $replace modifier and many security improvements.

New $replace modifier for basic rules

This new rule modifier allows Adguard to change any web response on the fly. Adguard is pretty good at HTML content filtering, and with this new modifier we can change response content of any response disregarding the content type. This is especially important for blocking video ads, for instance when a video player uses the VAST/VPAID protocol. Simple blocking of the web requests will break the video player. So the only way to block such ads is to modify response content, removing the ads from it. #38
