Adblock Plus isn't compatible with Chrome 19 anymore

Currently we require Chrome >= 19 as given in by the generated manifest.json when installing Adblock Plus. However we rely on following API changes that were introduced later:

  • We use an object in order to configure browserAction icons for different sizes, which isn't possible before Chrome 23.
  • We rely on sender.url in the chrome.runtime.onMessage listener, which was first added in Chrome 28.

So we have to update the minimum compatible version to Chrome 28. And can completely remove legacy code for supporting older versions of Chrome.
