Description (last modified by fhd)


ABP for IE currently does DOM traversal for element hiding, which has a number of issues.

What to change

We should switch to injecting CSS, which is in line with what we do on all other platforms, plus it's faster and more maintainable.

However, we need to keep using the traverser on older IE versions with limited CSS selector support. We could go over each selector, check if the IE version could support it and handle it using the traverser otherwise. That way, a considerable amount of rules could still be handled via CSS injection.
