I really need an ad blocker to filter https. Quite a few websites are forcing https by default which is great in many respects but not so good for AM users.

As much as I love AM, I'm thinking about switching to a competitor.

If someone here could give me a definite answer as to when https filtering will be available in AM, I may stick around and wait as long as it's not too long a wait. 'Soon' or 'not long' will not do. Surely one of the developers is able to be a little more precise than that? 1 month, couple of months, 6 months a year or longer. Any of those would be helpful please.

Thanks.

What is "soon" to you?
That's not an ad blocker... THIS is an ad blocker.

Well, before summer ends would be soon enough for me.

Also, how far along the coding is the HTTPS part? Is the current version in progress able to intercept and filter HTTPS yet? Or is that yet something that has not been figured out how to do?

I'd be happy to wait up-to 6 months but beyond that, I'd be struggling. Many of the websites I visit today force https so it is quite frustrating at having no protection from the ads.

6 months is certainly a possibility but I can't promise anything.

Ok. I appreciate that you're unable to be more precise on a release date, but I was hoping for something a little more concrete.

I'm going to stick with AM for the time being but I plan on formatting my Windows 7 installation at some point soon in order to install Windows 8. If AM is updated by then, I will be happy to renew, otherwise I will have little choice but to go elsewhere.

Thanks.

That is certainly understandable.

As long as you are willing to try v5.x when it is released that is all that we ask. :)

Just made the switch to Adguard. Seems to do the job pretty well and I now have https filtering.

When v5 gets released, I'll gladly check it out.

Thanks for all the help Jeff. I appreciate your efforts over the years.

Sure thing. :)

For now I'll test-drive AdGuard too, but I'll surely keep an eye on AM. I like your overall support, although the development is quite closed yet.
