Manifest V3, the new Chrome API version, has become a stumbling block for many developers. It makes significant changes to the rules that browser extensions must follow. Not only do they cause some inconvenience, but they also lead to a partial loss of functionality.
In August 2022, AdGuard released the world's first ad-blocking browser extension based on Manifest V3. The development was challenging: we faced many problems along the way. However, at that time we proved that there is a future for ad blockers even in the reality of Manifest V3.
Despite the fact that Google has extended the lifetime of Manifest V2 extensions until at least January 2024, we have not postponed the development of AdGuard VPN Browser Extension which works according to Manifest V3 rules, and we are ready to present it to you now.
Today we are releasing one of the first VPN extensions based on Manifest V3! The development was challenging and we faced many problems along the way. But good news: AdGuard VPN Browser extension is now ready to protect your privacy in the reality of Manifest V3!
