Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Adblock Plus 1.8.1 for Chrome, Opera and Safari released · 2014-05-07 15:10 by Sebastian Noack

Install Adblock Plus 1.8.1 for Chrome
Install Adblock Plus 1.8.1 for Opera (Opera 17 or higher required)
Install Adblock Plus 1.8.1 for Safari (Safari 6 or higher required)

Unfortunately, YouTube updated their website around the same time we released Adblock Plus for Safari yesterday, and partially broke blocking of videos ads in Safari (issue 438). But the good news are that we were quickly able to fix it, blocking all ads on YouTube again.

This release also fixes a regression with the “Block Element” context menu entry, which was broken in Chrome and Opera (issue 437). And we fixed an issue with the Dutch and Estonian translation which prevented installation from Chrome Web Store depending on selected language.

    Hi, just wanted to point out that the opera link for v1.8 & v1.8.1 just take you to the opera addon store where the adblock+ version is still 1.7.3, will it be updated to new version soon?

    Reply from Sebastian Noack:

    Opera manually reviews all extension updates. So when we release a new version, it takes longer until Opera users will get the update than users on Chrome and Safari.
