Wonderful, wonderful extension... until I upgraded to Safari 6.0. Now, many pages are incredibly slow to load, and Safari crashes constantly. Since disabling AdBlocker, my system is back to its speedy, stable self, but I greatly miss the clean looks AdBlocker provided. Hope to see an update soon!

Agreed. It makes realise how many ads I've been avoiding. Hope it gets upgraded soon.

I've just discovered that Ghostery, whose purpose is mainly to prevent tracking, is also blocking ads, so that I could disable AdBlocker. ;-)

I haven't tested it on Safari 6, though.

Indispensable and working perfectly for me on 10.6.8!
I've been a long time SafariBlock user and tried alternatives but nothing compares to it!
I only know of Adblock Plus on Firefox that's better, but not on Safari, no, no! ;-)

I too was very happy with the old SafariBlock and disappointed that the new version didn't quite work so well. I mainly use it to block flash commercials prior to online video material and when I installed the app on 2 different iMacs (one running a dutch version of 10.7.2 and Safari 5.1.2, the other an english system version of 10.7.2 and safari version 5.1.2), the app on the english system DID work and on the dutch version didn't. Maybe it's just a system's language error...

Looking forward to a working update for Safari 5.1. I've been using Glimmer Blocker since then and not quite happy with its speed. Adblocker was much better/faster loading pages IMHO and way easier to configure. Thanks.

As far as I can tell, Safari AdBlocker no longer works with Safari 5.1 (7534.48.3) on Lion GM. We desperately need a Lion update ASAP!!

Yep.
But i don't know if its an SIMBL (needed by the app) problem with LION or an problem with the app itself.

It's not SIMBL, Safari has updated to WebKit2, so SAB requires a rewrite. I am currently looking into an update, but don't have a lot of spare time at the moment...

Have been using this for a while now and can't imagine having to do without it. Easy, efficient, low maintenance. Worth the donation.

Excellent ad blocking extension: effective, feature rich and easy to configure. My only commentary is that using SIMBL is unfortunate now that Safari provides a framework to use extensions directly.

Apologies for the error outlined immediately below. The error loading yahoo.com occurs because of the inclusion of the filter: *yimg.com*. Elimination of this rule prevents the error entirely.

Safari 5.0.3 will not load Yahoo.com properly unless Safari AdBlocker 1.9.8.6 is turned off.
