Manifest V3 and Browser Guard efficacy

Go to solution Solved by alhazred,

I'm aware the Malwarebytes developers will support the upcoming Manifest V3 for Browser Guard, as has been mentioned in the forum.  My question is whether the upcoming changes will have a significant deleterious effect on how the extension protects the user.

I know ad-blockers have been limited in how they function but was wondering if this effects Browser Guard knowing it is more security inclined as opposed to a conventional ad-blocker.

We're working thru this now as we're internally testing our Mv3 version and making tweaks.

The biggest issue is around the severe limitation of rules and the fact that you can't dynamically update "static" rules on the fly as you can today.

It's unfortunate that Edge is following Chrome's lead.

Agreed.  I wonder how many people will move to Firefox because of this.

Thank you for the reply.
