Ad Limiter 2.2 is now available. Yahoo search results will again be rated, now that Ad Limiter understands a change in Yahoo links. Google search results will now be rated for countries where Google redirects “google.com” to country-specific sites. Blekko support has been removed, due to the demise of the Blekko search engine.
We’ve been upgrading the SiteTruth system. Recent changes include:
- All our add-ons for Firefox are now signed by the Mozilla Foundation. This will soon get rid of the phony add-ons using our add-on ID.
- The new US business database has been loaded and indexed. Business recognition has improved.
- Address parsing has improved. We now recognize about 95% of US mail addresses.
SiteTruth is loading a new database of 20 million US businesses. During the database upload, rating of new sites is very slow. Normal operation should resume by the morning of April 5. Rating quality will improve later in the month.
Now, you can enjoy a cleaner, less ad-cluttered experience on mobile. SiteTruth’s Ad Limiter now works on Firefox for Android.
The SiteTruth API for developers is now FCGI only. The long-obsolete CGI interface has been deleted. Users of the API should update their REST URLs.
Due to Firefox Bug 886329, “drop-down list in Jetpack add-on breaks entire UI”, the preferences menu in Ad Limiter is not working in Firefox version 23 only. It worked in Firefox 22, and is fixed in Firefox 24, which is now available. We suggest not using Firefox 23.
