    Lightbulb Adblock Plus 2.7.3

    FYI...

    Adblock Plus 2.7.3 for Firefox released
    - https://adblockplus.org/releases/adb...refox-released
    2016-04-27
    Install Adblock Plus 2.7.3 for Firefox
    This release adds support for the experimental CSS properties syntax to Adblock Plus for Firefox (issue 2401, issue 3955). This support isn’t complete yet, most important issue being that hits are not counted for CSS properties filters (issue 3969).
    Additional changes
    Fixed issues that Adblock Plus could potentially cause on Firefox startup (issue 2850).
    Some first-run page optimizations (issue 2668, issue 1292, issue 3736, issue 3814).
    Cleaned up internal messaging approach (issue 3499, issue 3851, issue 3853)...

    Exclamation Adblock Plus 1.12 for Chrome, Opera and Safari released

    FYI...

    Adblock Plus 1.12 for Chrome, Opera and Safari released
    - https://adblockplus.org/releases/adb...afari-released
    2016-06-01
    Install Adblock Plus 1.12 for Chrome
    Install Adblock Plus 1.12 for Opera
    Install Adblock Plus 1.12 for Safari (Safari 6 or higher required)
    This release features experimental Safari Content Blocking support. So if you’re on Safari 9, you can try out the new (faster) blocking mechanism now by enabling it in the options. But please read the announcement* first; as that feature is still experimental and Content Blockers have some limitations, there are some caveats. However, Content Blockers will eventually completely replace the old mechanism we relied on so far on Safari.
    * https://adblockplus.org/development-...ocking-support
    There also have been some bug fixes and other improvements for all platforms which are listed below, and some changes under the hood which aren’t visible to the user.
    Changes:
    - Improved performance of element hiding, reducing page load times (issue 235, issue 4038, issue 4036).
    - Fixed a regression, introduced with the previous release, which caused the Adblock Warning Removal List to not be added anymore (issue 3772).
    - Prevent websites from circumventing element hiding by removing or disabling the stylesheet (issue 3699).
    - Prevent websites from showing previously blocked elements (issue 3840).
    Chrome/Opera-only changes:
    - Added an option to hide the Adblock Plus developer tools panel (issue 3796).
    - Prevent websites from tricking users into adding subscriptions by simulating clicks on abp:subscribe links (issue 3828).
    - Worked around a Chrome bug that broke the feedback functionality on blogger.com (issue 2687).
    - Administrators deploying Adblock Plus via group policy can now configure additional subscriptions (issue 3801).
    - Starting with this release, there are unified builds for Chrome and Opera, using the exact same code on both browsers (issue 3760).
    Safari-only changes:
    - Added experimental support for Safari Content Blocking (see above, issue 3687).
    - Fixed: Wrong domain was whitelisted by icon menu after navigating through the history (issue 3924)...

    Avast to acquire AVG - $1.3B

    July 7, 2016 PRAGUE (AP) - "Avast Software says it is acquiring its anti-virus rival AVG Technologies N.V. in a $1.3 billion deal. Prague-based Avast says it is ready to pay $25 per share in cash for Amsterdam-based AVG, 33 percent above Wednesday's closing price on the New York Stock Exchange after the two signed a deal on it. Avast said Thursday the deal is meant to "gain scale, technological depth and geographical breadth." It aims to "take advantage of emerging growth opportunities in internet security as well as organizational efficiencies" with a goal to becoming serious competition for the global leaders in the internet security business. The companies have over 400 million users combined. Avast says the transaction is expected to close between Sept 15 and Oct 15..."
