New Updates of AdGuard for Mac

1. Stealth mode

The stealth mode is a special module whose sole purpose is to protect your online privacy. From a humble, Windows-specific feature to the core of almost any AdGuard product in the near future, it has come a long way. This is a logical matter because the value of privacy has been very high, and the need to protect privacy has become very obvious. There are four categories meeting AdGuard for Mac Stealth mode:

  • Routine – The function you can enable without any inconvenience.
  • Tracking method – These functions will prevent websites from tracking you. Keep in mind that if you enable the option in this category, some websites may not run properly or even at all.
  • Browser API – Enable or disable browser API-related options here. Firstly you should read everyone’s description to find a good balance between privacy and convenience.
  • Miscellaneous – As the name suggests, this category contains some mixed options. Hiding your user agent or shielding your IP address is the function you can find there.

If this is the first time you encounter stealth mode, don’t be intimidated by the number of options. The first installation wizard will help you understand what works best for you, and you can always ask questions through comments, support, or social media.

2. New user interface

Continue with AdGuard for Android update analogy, AdGuard for Mac has a new UI design! Ideally, you won’t interact so much with it, but when you do, you would notice the difference between them: another prominent feature is the new assistant (circular icon in the corner of the page). Simple but full-featured, not only about the appearance here, the new assistant has become more practical, and it is ahead of the old version in terms of convenience. For example, it allows you to access Web reports directly from pages to search for any questions associated with filters.

3. CoreLibs

This is the first stable version of AdGuard for Mac that introduced CoreLibs. CoreLibs is a core and new filter engine in the filter process. The impact of this change is both enormous and lasting. Compared with the previous version, CoreLibs has significantly improved the quality and performance of blocking ads. Because CoreLibs is a cross-platform filter engine, in addition to these obvious improvements, it also allows for more new functions that were previously available only in other AdGuard products. It is worth mentioning that after AdGuard for Android, AdGuard for Mac becomes the second product in the AdGuard product line to get the CoreLibs Process.

4. AdGuard Extra

Even with CoreLibs, it may not work in some complex situations using common methods with the filter rules, especially in some cases of the ads blocker evasion/ads replay (advanced anti-blocking technology being used by some websites). Therefore, we propose another solution – a user script called AdGuard Extra.

For unfamiliar users, user scripts are basically mini-program that modify web pages and improve the browsing experience. AdGuard Extra achieves this goal in a way that makes it harder for websites to adopt evasion/re-injection technology. AdGuard for Mac is the first product to achieve this function.
