Description (last modified by sebastian)


Currently, Adblock Plus supports Chrome 29 trough the latest version (i.e. 54 dev). Testing all those versions became virtually impossible. Moreover, we have a couple workarounds for older versions, we'd like to get rid of. Also considering the low users numbers for Chrome 29-40 (including other Chromium based browsers), i.e. 0.7% of Adblock Plus users on Chromium-based browsers, we decided to unsupport those versions and remove the legacy code.

What to change

  • Advance minimum_chrome_version to 41.0
  • Remove workaround to detect top-level documents on Chrome 29.
  • Remove workaround dealing with anonymous frames on Chrome <=40 and get rid of the init() function. Refactoring the element hiding code into a class seems sensible.
