New Filtering Log

Now it is much more than a list of requests processed by Adguard – this is a full-fledged filter development tool. With the help of the Filtering Log you will be able to analyze what requests are blocked or allowed by Adguard. Analysis is not the only task of the Filtering Log, just a couple of clicks and you can block or unlock any request.

You can open it through the context menu or by clicking on the “magnifier” icon in the extension menu.

One more important change – Filtering Log is fully functional even if extension works in integration mode.

“Pause protection” function

Pausing protection allows to completely (not only on some particular site) disable Adguard filtering. Resuming it is as easy as turning off.
