Adblock Plus for Opera released
The team responsible for the popular Adblock Plus extension for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox has released a first version of the official program for the Opera web browser. This version replaces the old Opera AdBlock extension which has been maintained previously by the team. Recent changes to Opera's url filter API, introduced by Opera software in Opera 12.10, paved the way for a conversion of the extension for the Opera web browser. Note that the extension will only work in Opera 12.10 or newer and not previous versions of the browser because of this.
The extension shares the code base with the Google Chrome Adblock Plus extension, and the development team plans to release future versions simultaneously for both web browsers.Development builds are not available yet but will be released in the future as well for the browser.
The extension is already listed on Opera's official add-ons website where it can be downloaded and installed directly in the browser. Once you have installed the Adblock Plus add-on in Opera you will notice a new button in the browser's main toolbar indicating a successful installation in the browser.
Adblock Plus works right out of the box in Opera afterwards and you will notice that the majority of ads that you encounter while browsing the web do not appear anymore.
Adblock Plus for Opera has several limitations right now, of which some are due to limitations of the Opera Internet browser, and others because they have not been implemented yet.
- Adblock Plus can't be disabled for specific websites. Filters apply either to all websites or none.
- The Hide placeholders of blocked elements feature is not available.
- A user interface to aid in the creation of filters is not available, but may be available in future releases.
- abp: links are not handled right now, but should be in future releases
The main advantage over Opera's internal urlfilter.ini feature is that users can simply install Adblock Plus for the browser to block the majority of advertisement they encounter on the Internet. It is a set and forget kind of thing whereas editing urlfilter manually takes more time but may give users better control over the ad blocking in the browser.Advertisement
Just upgraded Opera 12.10 today and now this relaxing breaking news. Ghacks is always ahead from rest of sites.

Unable to add EasyPrivacy subscription from their website. Gives some error. Even tried manually thru linking, it got added, but it says not supported.
I think they cleared the problem. Now you can add the EasyPrivacy to Adblock Plus! Just follow the Steps:
1. Goto Preferences of the extension
2. Select “Add filter subscription”
3. Click the drop-down and select the last option “Add a different subscription”
4. Name it as “EasyPrivacy”
5. In the next text box, just copy-paste (without quotes): “https://easylist-downloads.adblockplus.org/easyprivacy.txt”
6. Then Click “Add”.
7. You have successfully added! Now Click “Update Now”!
Adblock Plus has a conflict with Ghostery. It stopped working after Ghostery updated its library. The solution is disable & then re-enable Adblock.
Since I updated to the latest version Adblock Plus has not worked at all. :-(
Warning) Adblock Plus Installs Trojans, Viruses, and Tracking Code on Computers
I have some sort of guess that Martin uses Opera :)
Hej I use all browsers ;)
