Desription of Adguard 1.5.3
Adguard can make your online experience safer because, though Macs and Apple laptops are quite safe to use, when it comes to ad blockers, Macs experience real problems. Already-existing solutions do not consider the specifics of OS X. That greatly influences the stability of work in Safari, and these ad-blocking extensions fail to do their work properly, especially when video ads are an issue.
New Adguard lets you fully enjoy web surfing without any distractions. Watch those videos you want to watch, and not video ads, on YouTube, Twitch, or any other website. Look at photos of your friends and not at endless banners on Facebook and other social networks. Adguard gives you freedom of choice and saves your nerves. It works perfectly with all browsers, as it was developed specially for use on OS X.
Ad Blocker. Subtle filtering of all incoming traffic, and what is more, ads are blocked before they load to the page.
Browsing Security. Adguard checks every page for any malicious content using our databases, and blocks requests from potentially dangerous ones.
Privacy Protection. Any counters and tracking instruments will be blocked by powerful Spyware filter. With Adguard you can stop worrying for the privacy of your actions on the Internet.
Adguard works in all browsers. Safari, Chrome – you name it. No exceptions.
Easy to install. A couple of clicks, and your Mac is protected from ads. You don’t have to struggle with overcomplicated settings – just surf the net and Adguard will do all the work.
Blocking video ads. Any video ad, on any site – Adguard will block it.
Application filtering. Adguard is more than just an addon for browser. It can help you to get rid of ads in any app on your Mac.
Is supported in all OS X versions from 10.7 64-bit and higher.
Adguard has intuitive and simple UI with such additional features like Adguard Assistant and filtering log.
Daily ad filters and phishing databases updates.
Adguard licenses are available in one- or two-year subscriptions, or for lifetime. The service is also available for Android devices, for desktop systems, or for desktop and mobile devices. The published price in our listing is that of a one-year subscription for one computer. Licensing information can be found here.
[Fixed] AdGuard doesn’t filter apps from the WebCatalog app #165
Previously, AdGuard wasn’t able to filter apps installed with WebCatalog, and they couldn’t even be added to the list of filtered apps manually. This issue gets fixed in this version.
[Added] $network basic rules modifier #171
[Changed] The ~third-party modifier behavior #177
[Fixed] Content filtering exception rules #176
[Fixed] Error while parsing a wide filtering rule #175
[Fixed] Replace rules aren’t applied to .m3u8 files content #178
[Fixed] Regular expressions with $ aren’t processed properly #167
[Fixed] Content rules are applied even when there is a $document exception #234
[Fixed[ The script is being removed/cut if there is an $empty modifier in the rule #209
[Fixed] Cosmetic filters are being applied to pages whitelisted by a $document exception #189
[Improved] The range of $$ rules has been increased #196
[Improved] “ExtendedCss” module has been upgraded to v1.0.8 #216
[Improved] The trimming limit for request URLs has been increased #214
[Improved] The $network modifier has been extended, it can now be an exception as well #190
[Added] An option to exclude websites with EV certificates from filtering #170
An option already familiar to Windows users. Some websites feature Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificates, which require a very strict verification process and offer a stronger guarantee that the website is plausible and trusted. Usually, they are bank websites, payment systems etc., and they normally do not have many ads anyway, if any.
We have also improved the security aspect of AdGuard by addressing some security-related issues (#186, #194).
[Fixed] Wrong cyphers order #224
[Fixed] SHA-1 intermediate issue #194
[Fixed] AdGuard cannot handle huge chunks properly #218
[Fixed] Connection is allowed when DH1024 is in use #186
[Fixed] “strict-dynamic” CSP is not handled properly #203
[Fixed] AdGuard Crashes when receives new metadata from backend #220
[Fixed] There is an empty response from local.adguard.com in some cases when HTTPS is used #206
[Fixed] Several network errors and compatibility issues
[Improved] Filter editor has been reworked: #56 Now it has become possible to enter the ‘advanced editing mode’. Basically, it means that the User filter turns into a single text area which you can work with as in any text editor: copy/paste several lines at once and apply all changes at once and not line by line. The search tool will help you to find or replace anything you need. All in all, it should be a welcome change for all the aspiring filter developers.
[Added] Add “Reset settings…” option #180
[Changed] “System Extension Blocked” issue on macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) #217

[Fixed] UF is always turned on after restarting the app #237
[Fixed] Interface bug with filters list #236
[Fixed] Misplaced title in Support window #235
[Improved] AdGuard can now be launched from an external drive #210
A niche but useful improvement. In case you prefer to store your data on an external drive and switch between different desktops a lot. No need to update your user filter and other settings separately on every Mac separately anymore, just have AdGuard installed on an external drive.
[Changed] The SSL exceptions list has been updated
[Fixed] Yandex mail compatibility issue #160
