He used to, but then the thread got overrun with dumb questions.

Bromite is no more on XDA Labs because XDA Labs does still not support (as far as I know) multi-arch, and other issues (lack of automation for the releases etc); I was in contact with the XDA Labs devs about this but there were no replies or feedback for months.

The preferred channel to get updates is the dedicated F-Droid repository: https://www.bromite.org/fdroid

@csagan5 I know you said you're not going to add any feature that's not privacy related or any visual tweaks, but is there any chance that you add chrome extension support for Bromite like kiwi did? Want to know what's your thought on that. Thanks

You have to report the bug to the F-Droid client issue tracker.

Feel free to submit patches for the extensions support; I am not committing to develop any of them.

Since I can not login to GitHub at the moment to create a new issue with the issue template (error: What?! Your browser did something unexpected. Please contact us if the problem persists.) I post it here:
I think the ua string should be updated. Currently we use a Chrome v71 string and showing such an old version has two disadvantages:

1) fingerprinting will be easier, because Chrome is for the majority of users updated automatically and on the newest version, we can not hide between them and become more unique
2) sites checking for version numbers to check if they can use specific functions start to send error messages that the browser is too old and content will not be delivered

Sites doing (2) should use feature detection; feature detection has been suggested as the best practice for the last ~20 years or so.

Yea I was getting this as well however after downloading the appropriate apk from the latest release (76.0.3809.85) on GitHub it installed fine. Not too sure what the issue is with the F-Droid repo (I’ve never experienced any such error before with F-Droid) but the issue has already been reported on GitHub as issue #344 so it can be followed up there. Developer has requested an appropriate F-Droid logcat there to determine what’s going on.

Hiding blank spaces, blocks nothing.
LOL, he knows that.
You are aware that he is asking if the empty/blank areas from the removed ads can also be removed. You ever been at a page with a lot of blocked ads but the space occupied by those ads are still there? An annoyance, especially when there's quite a few scattered throughout an article.
The ad blocker MinMinGuard, f.i., attempts to remove said blank spaces. That's all he's asking, whether the dev will or will not consider such an "enhancement" to the ad blocking.
