0.9.3.0 can be found here. Firefox users can stay on this until the future releases are back in motion.

https://github.com/chrisaljoudi/uBlock/releases

Chrome users are advised to just stay on the Chrome Web Store version as gorhill intends to keep maintaining it, unmolested by /g/'s autism.

I hope they improve Firefox port. Ublock for Firefox on android has been shit for me

On 0.9.2.3 at the moment, Firefox. I'm not updating until this settles down.

The new maintainer is really fucking shady. He didn't do jack shit, but immediately claims that uBlock is his work and plastered donation buttons all over the place. Fuck that guy.

This did not happen.

>>47342330
Yes it did, on his website. Paraphrasing, "Made with love and care by Chris" or some shit like that, only if you dig more in the website you find a sentence in a tiny tiny font that says "originally developed by gorhill".

I think he's capable. He's the guy that did the work on the fennec/firefox mobile port.

what happened to Deathamns, I wish he continued to maintain the firefox version, he's the one that made it possible to have it on firefox in the first place.

>gets mad and lol drama trying to divert attention from this TRUTH
uBlock is dead. It's an addon that gets money from ad servers to hide ads because seeing ads isn't where the money comes from, it comes from tracking users which hiding ads instead of blocking them allows.

Report any pro-uBlock thread as viral advertising by these fucking disgusting piles of shit and make sure they never do anything with technology ever again in their goddamn pathetic loser lives.

Can we get real for a moment and realize that the only reason /g/ is so hard on Chris is because his last name sounds like Jewdie?

sup ABP shill

Can /g/ critize anything or anyone at all without resorting to the good ol' antisemitism?

Why not just use an adblock that doesn't freeze the browser for 5 seconds everytime it loads a page?
>>
>>47343189
Don't be so anal.
>>
>>47343166
No, the reason we are hard on that motherfucker is because instead of "made with love and care by gorhill. (maintained by Chris)", he takes all the credit with "made with love and care by Chris. (originally developed by gorhill)."

Look at his update since he look over. It's all edits to the readme and messages for donation begging, nothing else. He even fucked over the translation efforts by making people do direct edits.

>uBlock is dead. It's an addon that gets money from ad servers to hide ads because seeing ads isn't where the money comes from, it comes from tracking users which hiding ads instead of blocking them allows.

Hello ABP shill. You may have succeeded in pissing off gorhill with your Jew tactics, but he is still going to continue.

Until now I've been doubtful but I just saw a 4chan ad appear that only went away when I F5'd the page. Using uBlock for Firefox 0.9.2.3
>>
>>47343267
it does block connections but the first time it encounters a connection you might see it at least momentarily read the FAQ

>>
>>47343340
he is far, far behind gorhill and deathamns in terms of amount of work put into this project and they never asked for a dime. the first (and only thus far) thing chris al juden does upon becoming maintainer is put "uBLOCK: MADE BY CHRIS - GIBE MONIES" everywhere.
>>
>>47342376
He changed it. Originally it didn't credit gorhill
>>
>>47343300
But then it has already let the ad through, before hiding it. That's bullshit.
>>
>>47343584
only the first time, once it's in the database you will never see it again. Read the FAQ

Not good enough when there are other blockers that don't have the same issue.

Tried it, found out about all the shady shit, got rid of it. They keep coming up with new ways to enslave us, it's a real man's job to fight this and you can't expect a /g/ meme (uBlock) to do a real man's job. I'm so glad I went back to adblock plus, God bless The United States of America.

>pointless drama over the development of a browser extension

Alternatively, just use HOSTS blacklisting and never have to worry about keeping extensions up to date in the first place.

http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts2.htm

Wouldn't that be a lot easier than having to migrate from one extension to another due to constant changes in policy, the developer introducing bloat or adware, etc.? This is the method of ad-blocking I've used for over a decade, and it's always worked fine for me.
>>
>>47343947
>big blank spaces everywhere
>>
>>47343947
Cosmetic element hiding is a major part of any ad blocker.
>>
>>47343947
No you just have to worry about keeping your host file up to date instead. Which thing requires more maintenance? The block lists or the addon?
>>
>>47343947
>>Alternatively, just use HOSTS blacklisting

lol
>>
>>47343990
a cron job or bash script wouldn't be hard to make, would it? nevertheless, i still like the cosmetic filters so i'll stick with ublock
>>
>>47343990

I usually go months without updating my HOSTS file. Nothing has slipped past the radar so far, though.

You can automate the process with a batch file, at any rate.

Ahahaha. That's fucking hilarious after all the shilling about how much better it is than adblock.
>>
>>47344914
It's still better than adblock plus though that hasn't changed at all. The fact that two devs left doesn't mean the project has degraded in performance or usefulness.
>>
>blaming /g/

I sometimes wonder how stupid op can be
>>
Seeing as gorhill released his own 0.9.3.0 version without all the changes made by Chris, I bet he regrets giving up ownership.
>>
>>47345124
Note his repo doesn't have an issue tracker. He doesn't miss the old repo at all. All those crying bitches are chris' problem now

>>47345140
Sounds good to me.

Just an FYI from the Chrome store:

>But I will keep maintaining my own version here.

>Roughly I consider uBlock feature-complete, and my goal is to keep it working just fine, ensuring it keeps working flawlessly on Chromium-based browser. Both versions will likely diverge eventually.

Pretty much. I see no point in using Chris' version.

Another fine project killed by asper/g/ers and sjws.
>>
>>47345513
It's fine. gorhill did the old switch-a-roo.

>>47345427

Most important hurdle is getting the Firefox version prepared for full review. Hopefully Alex has the patience, because holy shit AMO is slow as molasses.

>all the changes made by Chris
Did you actually look at those changes he made? It's all other than changing app links it's all readme changes to make it look like jew made it it and plastered donation buttons everywhere.

Why would gorhill put that in? Fucking retard.
