    Default AdSweep is back?

    AdSweep seems to be under new managment.

    Note: The extension makes connections back to my server through a proxy to load ad details. While, because of this proxy, I do not see any of your details, if you mind this, please stick to the legacy version.
    For Chrome, there's a new "Extension" version and a "Legacy" version.
    What's going on?

    Now arises my dilemma, do I begin using Adsweep again, or do I stick with dvCRAB since it has editable blocking rules?

    I've looked at dvCRAB too, its alright.
    The previous version of AdSweep worked just fine, but the current one seems kinda messed up, it doesn't seem to block ads at all, or at least less efficiently.

    Hopefully, Chrome will support content policy soon so that Chrome's Adblock+ will function more properly.

    The current doesn't block anything, but the old V1.6 blocks kinda much.

    I am using v.1.6.18.8
    and removed the "auto-update" bit of the code

    Works fine...

    No more tinkering with the code needed!

    Adsweep is updated with v2.0.3.
    Most problems are fixed... most of them. It actually blocks the right stuff now.

    EDIT: For some odd reason, it blocks some Youtube videos. Maybe it blocks the advertisements in the video and the video along with it?

    Has anyone tried adthwart. Doesn't seem to block very well. How would you compare it to adsweep??
