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?
Despite all the internal and beta testing, sometimes things just don't go quite as you expect them to after a release. This happens even to the largest of companies, not to mention AdGuard. What separates good developers from not so good ones is how fast they react to the unexpected difficulties. We'd like to think we are among the former ones, that's why we don't shy away from hotfixes if the situation calls for it.
If you are on macOS Sierra or High Sierra, you must have received a notification about available Safari update (when Mojave rolls out, Safari 12 will be mandatory). No doubt that there's a lot of cool stuff inside, but we will save the praise for others and instead focus on one change that seriously concerns all AdGuard Browser Extension users: new Safari is breaking all directly downloaded
.safariextz extensions. And this is bad news.
Hello! Long time no see! Soon it will be time to bid farewell to Summer, which is always a little sad. And while new AdGuard release won't be able to extend it, maybe it will make your day a little better. Let's have a look at the new AdGuard Browser extension.
Today we want to try something different — combine two release announcements in one blog post. Main reason is, both new Mac and extension updates, while being important, are rather technical and do not provide a lot of topics to talk about without descending into using lots of developer lingo. Let's have a quick look at AdGuard for Mac v1.5.6 and AG Browser Extension v2.9.2.
