Dr.Web LinkChecker 3.2.1 released

July 11, 2013

Doctor Web has released version 3.2.1 of its plugin Dr.Web LinkChecker for Google Chrome, Safari, Opera and Mozilla (Firefox and Thunderbird). The updated version boasts new features to block undesired content and better usability.

Now Dr.Web LinkChecker supports content filtering, allowing banner and flash ads to be blocked. The database of advertising sites, which is based on information found in the public domain as well as on data obtained by Doctor Web virus analysts, is constantly updated with new entries. In addition, users can manually block any undesirable elements of web pages.

Users can also take advantage of the new Internet tracker option that makes it possible to avoid having activities monitored on the Web and corresponding targeted advertising as well as to block web analytics features (Google Analytics, Yandeks.Metrika, etc.) that monitor user behaviour on web pages. In addition, the new feature makes it possible to block social networking site plugins (Facebook, Twitter, VKontakte, Google+, and LinkedIn).

The plugin's icon, displayed on the browser's navigation bar, allows users to track the number of blocked elements on a web page and control some Dr.Web LinkChecker features.

The plugin settings window has been revamped to make Dr.Web LinkChecker more informative and usable.

The list of supported browser versions has been changed, too: now the plugin works with Opera version 15 only and Safari - 6.0 and above.

To use the plugin, download it from the corresponding extensions catalogue available for your browser. If you already use Dr.Web LinkChecker, it will be updated automatically.
