About a month ago we announced the most recent addition to the AdGuard family: AdGuard for Safari. It has already found its users, and we were happy to see a lot of feedback during the very first days after the release. Today, after taking that feedback into account, we roll out the first update. So what exactly is inside?
20 Dec 2018 update:
We rolled out an update that wasn't big enough to justify a separate Blog post, so lets mention it here.
[Changed] Menu Bar icon is now optional #84
In the previous update we made the Safari icon optional; it was only logical to make the Menu Bar one optional too. You can even disable them both if you want to go full minimalistic :) You'll find this option in AdGuard preferences in case you want to hide it.
Aside from it, some quality of life changes were introduced, some minor bugs were fixed. The full changelog is available on GitHub.
[Changed] The use of the Safari icon is not forced anymore #78
Disabling AG for Safari icon in browser preferences
As it is historically with AdGuard extensions, the extension icon itself serves as a menu, providing such options as manual blocking of any element, reporting websites and adding domains to the whitelist. While we believe that having access to all these features right from the web page is very handy, apparently, many users don't like seeing the extension icon in browser. From now on, you can simply disable the icon via the Safari preferences (it can be brought back the same way, of course).
There are other changes, of course. For example, several new localizations have been added. The full list is available on GitHub.
Remind you that AdGuard Safari extension can be downloaded for free directly from App Store, and good luck fighting those ads!
