Hi, when will a new version be released?
Currently, we are focused on the mv2 version. We will continue to work on mv3 later. In a month or two. Keep tuned.
After adding some custom user rules I can't access the options. · Issue #29 · AdguardTeam/AdGuardMV3
Almost certainly because of this:
Chrome Extensions Manifest V2 support timeline - Chrome Developers
If the extension is not updated (such as filter lists) it is recommended to disable it.
My Guess: It is an experimental version to develop a 'working' adblocker with the MV3 restrictions. Main focus was to get the filtering engine working. AdGuard moved the filtering engine outof their products (AG for Windows, AG DNS and AG extension). For what I understand from their blog this was a generic filtering engine capable of simple ABP filtering (which is quite a feat when you consider that at DNS level only host file blocking rules were possible). Next they also moved the advanced filtering rules (think of cosmetic filtering etc) to a Separate filtering engine and encapsulated them with their own API. The latter to move seamlessly from MV2 to MV3 API.Why doesn't AdGuard MV3 have an option to export and import settings?
Despite the performance improvements, the 'optimized' AG MV3 still loads websites 0,3 to 0,5 second slower than uBO MV2 (first uncached access). I had not expected this and I did not intent to measure it, but it was a noticeable delay after switching from uBO MV2 to AG MV3. So it seems that the performance justification of Google is nonsense. Because extensions still inject script into pages (to evade rules functionality limitations) the security goal of MV2 had already sunk
