    I found on the blog of the whole article in a topic on the ad muncher forums! I just signed up to be noticed! Can't wait!

    Wow what a roller coaster Murray has been through. Glad it wasn't ever sold though and he stuck with it!

    Tomorrow is the day!

    I didn't realize he started with only $100.

    Interesting background. BTW, he's a lucky fellow to have such a pretty girl by his side.

    Admuncher? Never heard of them. I'll stick with my reliable solution.

    I truly am glad that he's happy, has a very lovely lady to enjoy life , etc. Unfortunately I still think the damage has been done to their reputation. I do think they can get it back over time, provided v5 is a much bigger improvement, support for users is exceptional and no more promising what can't be delivered happens. We'll have to see what happens, but I really do wish him luck. That blog post was needed a long time ago.

    Great and genuine story. If this is now happening V5 will be released for real, I can only say congratulations. :thumb:

    And I agree with Dave above, this blog post was indeed needed a long long time ago.

    New mission: Win back some old longtime users that have switched to other products.

    I do too. Like I said on this forum and the Ad Muncher forum, I wish Murray and Jeff the best. :)

    I don't see https filtering listed under significant changes?.

    Well, imo v5 doesn't bring anything what Adguard either already has or will have in the near future. Though I don't say that one day Ad Muncher can't challenge Adguard but its (Ad Muncher's) success is solely dependent on when it will be released. Time is ticking ... It's the fact that Murray doesn't say when the live version will be released, he lets us to only guess that beta release might be out soon. However, as we, former longtime AM users, know Murray keeps beta versions very long before they're finally promoted to the live (official) versions.

    I'm curious to learn how v5 will filter ads in iOS because @avatar (Adguard developer) has said that a VPN is the only solution. However Murray says iOS will be filtered via engine ?!

    Is it needed these days?

    I don't have ad problems anymore.
    What are you doing wrong? o_O

    I think the thread title could do with amending as Ad Muncher 5 is not actually here, yet.

    Because you love them you consider them as an inseparable part of web pages. Therefore you don't perceive them. :argh:

    Other chance is that you've got an adblocker :p

    Someone needs to tell to that Murray guy that we're in 2014, this Interface it's not only aesthetically horrible but remind me something that came out from the early 00s..Uninspired, dull, and plain ugly!

    If it´s the one from the PDF file, it´s ugly indeed.

    I´m thinking the same thing, I´m using stuff like Ghostery and AdBlock, isn´t that enough?

    Yes, interesting to read how it all started, but I always thought it was only one guy that developed this tool? :)

    It's not. As Murray says, "I produced the first interface proposal in 2008. It's changed a lot since then..."

    I for one, would be nervous about https filtering. At least as I currently understand it. Not at all crazy about any ad filtering program seeing all my passwords and financial stuff for merchants, email, banks, etc.

    Me too, but with per site filtering - i.e. the ability to enable it only on the sites you want - this shouldn't be a problem.

    His words:
    At first we were thinking about it too, but honestly I don't think this is the best way.
    I mean we are good at content filtering but browser app is totally different.
    And filtering is not the only thing you need in your browser.

    Ad Muncher is now free!

    http://www.murrayhurps.com/blog/ad-muncher-announcement

    Now it really will be the best ad blocker in the world! I hope this means free for android, iOS, Linux (when it comes) and mac (when it comes) too!

    We will see a lot of people switch back now. hehe
