Adblock Plus updated

Free ad blocking tool Adblock Plus has been updated. Version 1.8.4 fixes bugs in the browser extension for Chrome, Opera and Safari. The biggest improvement is that the ‘block element’ dialog, that was sometimes covered up by other things on a page, has been fixed.

In the extensions for Chrome and Opera, more problems with webpage displays have been cleaned up. With the Safari extension, there is now support for ad blocking on YouTube when using its HTML5 player. It should also work better with JavaScript, and a problem with ‘EasyPrivacy’, which would break some pages, has also been fixed. Safari users should also notice improved browsing speed with lots of open tabs.

Version 1.8.4 of Adblock Plus is available now for Chrome, Opera and Safari. If you already use the extension, it will update automatically in your browser.
