Release notes: 
https://github.com/AdguardTeam/AdguardBrowserExtension/releases

==============================

What's new in version 2.9.2:

[Added] Integration with the new Assistant

For a while now we develop AdGuard Assistant more or less independently, to later use it wherever we need — Windows and Mac apps use regular Assistant, Android and iOS apps use mobile version. Browser extension users encounter Assistant when they click "Block ads on this website" button. We will not go into the details here, those who interested can find the exhaustive changelog inside the Assistant repo.

[Improved] InsertCSS to use instead of the content scripts

There was a certain change in Chrome browser recently, that prompted us to respond by reconsidering the way we inject scripts and styles. The good thing is, thanks to this change we now have less bugs, more possibilities and were even able to make the extension more lightweight by reducing the amount of code.

[Improved] ExtendedCss has been updated to v1.10

This change is on the technical side, but from the end user perspective it converts into better performance and better quality ad blocking, thanks to more tools being available to the extension now.

==============================

In addition to browser extensions, there are also AdGuard versions for Windows and Mac. You can download them on the website adguard.com.
How do they differ from the browser extension:

- Block ads in all browsers.
- Block ads even better (although it would seem that it just couldn’t be any better :)).
- Block requests to dangerous sites, instead of just warning about them.
- Contain Parental Control module. When it is enabled, you can safely leave your children alone with the internet.
- Allow you to install extensions (userscripts) - Greasemonkey and Tampermonkey analogue for all browsers.
- Integrated with the Web of Trust (WOT, mywot.com). With us, you will be assured of reliability of the websites that you are visiting.
