Today we are ready to present you Adguard 5.10. In the new version you will find many changes. We have estimated the work of 5.9 and worked hard to improve the program. In addition, we have prepared several innovations, which we are going to describe here more detailed.
Short list of important changes: greatly reduced memory usage, we introduced convenient addition of new ad filters, integration with WoT is now a separate extension, added support for new browsers, fixed conflicts with popular programs and defects in the processing of requests and more.
What we’ve prepared for Adguard 5.10 users:
We have significantly optimized memory usage in 5.10. Now, even if you use an old computer or a weak netbook, Adguard will work silently in a background without slowing down your device. We compared memory footprint with the one of the preceding version. And we must say 5.10 showed a result several times lower.
In addition, Adguard has became an even more comprehensive program. Now users can install any ad filters. What does it mean? In addition to the filters that are already installed in Adguard by default, you can add third-party ones, such as a list of filters that allow Adguard to block ads in different segments of the Internet – websites in different languages, in particular. All of this can be done directly in the program, simply by selecting a filter you want and clicking on the “Add selected” button.
Integration with Web of Trust is now brought out in the separate extension, which can be disabled. Also a warning when visiting a suspicious website has changed. With the help of WoT, our Adguard is able to notify you instantly about the reputation of websites and show the reasons for which the site is considered to be suspicious. “Categories of suspicion” can be, in particular: scam, potentially illegal, misleading claims or unethical, poor customer experience, privacy risks and others.
Fixed in new version:
You can update program to version 5.10 right now. To do this, open Adguard, switch to the “About” page and click on “Check for updates”. In the lower right corner there will be a message about available updates. Click on “Update”.
That is all! Now you have the new Adguard 5.10
