Unlike Safari AdBlock (made by a different developer for Safari and Chrome), 'Adblock Plus' is transparent and doesn't try to hide its changes to code, etc. I consider this very important, to say the least, for a browser extension that has access to all the websites I go to. 'AdBlock' is deceptive in my opinion and I think Apple should investigate them.

That's mainly why I recommend 'Adblock Plus' vastly over 'AdBlock'.

I only wish that 'Adblock Plus' continued to support Safari 5.1.10 on Snow Leopard Mac OS 10.6.8 since as of August 2014 about a quarter of all Mac users still use that older OS for various reasons. Regrettably, only 'AdBlock' (made by the other suspicious developer) works with Snow Leopard.

From their website:

"We do not specifically collect any user data, and most of your data (e.g. what websites you visit) is never sent to our servers to begin with."

Specifically? Most?

Not exactly a ringing endorsement of your privacy.

What that means is that there are some data that your browser automatically sends when checking for updates or when Adblock Plus downloads filter lists. Beside that Adblock Plus doesn't send any data anywhere.

Really? Are you sure?

Every time your browser sends an HTTP request, information like your your IP address and which browser and operating system you are using are sent across the internet. This is just how the internet works.

However unlike some other extensions and websites, Adblock Plus doesn't leak any data about you and your browsing behavior. There are some data that must be collected on your computer in order to make Adblock Plus work. But those data aren't transmitted to any server.

There are no secrets in the source code of Adblock Plus. It is free and open source software after all. Everybody is welcome to read the code:
