Description (last modified by sebastian)


Currently, info.application is hard-coded to "chrome" and "opera" in the respective builds. However, when we use a unified build for all Chromium-based browsers (currently under discussion) that won't work anymore. But even until then this information is redundant with addonName which is "adblockpluschrome" and "adblockplusopera" respectively, at the moment. Moreover, currently, other Chromium-based browser (e.g. Yandex.Browser) are mistakenly reported as Chrome.

What to change

  • Detect info.application on the client-side, based on the user agent string.
  • Also make sure that info.applicationVersion refers to that application.
