PithHelmet3.0b6

01 July 2010

Add powerful filters to Safari.

Overview

PithHelmet... Problem: I hate ads. Solution: Kill my television. Better Solution: Content-filter my Web pages...

The PithHelmet adds some basic but powerful content filtering to Apple's Safari browser. The basic purpose is to filter advertisements, but there are other potential uses as well (blocking Flash, Shockwave or horrible midi loops). This is just a quick hack on top of Apple's basic framework, but it seems to work rather effectively.

Might someone know if PH will be updated for Lion compatibility? And with AdBlock and the like, is it even necessary?

Is PithHelmet 3.0b6 fully compatible with Safari 5.0.2? If so, I hope the developer releases another beta update soon with updated version compatibility strings so that end users can just run the updated installer instead of needing to mess around with plist files.

I went thru the installation process MANY TIMES! Each time, installation was 'successful', for both SIMBL, and Pithhelmet. Neither SIMBL or Pithhelmet can be found!! Can't be opened either of course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am using snow leopard mac os x. Anyone know why this is.

The developer doesn't have a comprehensive or frequently-updated blog so I was wondering if anyone know if he had plans to make this into a Safari Extension now that Safari 5.0.1 is out.

While the above indicates the latest Beta is 3.0b3, a visit to the developer's site indicates it is 3.0b6 (as of 23 June 10). FWIW: On my C2D Intel iMac, OS 10.6.4, I have found the DL and install without issue, though Safari must still be run in 32-bit mode. Aside from that, no problems yet detected.

http://www.culater.net/software/PithHelmet/PithHelmet.php says: PithHelmet 3 now works with both Safari 4 and 5 running on both Leopard and Snow Leopard. • SIMBL-0.9.x (install first) • PithHelmet-3.0b6.pkg (released 2010-06-23) But if SIMBL-0.9.x (0.9.7a) still requires Snow Leopard then how can PH now work on Leopard?

Reposting a variation of the question I've recently asked the developer: Anyone know if it's currently possible to use PithHelmet with Safari 5 on Leopard (PPC) systems? Seems that's (still) an unsupported combination but maybe I've overlooked something.

Though it isn't here on Mac Update yet, the Safari 5 iteration Of PithHelmet 3 is available on the developer's site and works like the charm it is. I have been running PitHelmet for many years. Many years. It is hands down the most effective and manipulable content filter I've ever found. Yes, I've used Safari AdBlocker, and it doesn't come close. With PithHelmet I can seen absolutely nothing but the content I want to see on any site. Or, I can choose to see all of the ads, or all of a particular kind of ad. It's genius. With each Safari whole digit upgrade, theres a brief pause in PithHelmet availability while Mike does his magic to make everything compatible, and each time, I am stunned by the ad content on sites I visit regularly. No, I don't like this advertising paradigm on the internet. If I need to pay for access to content, I figure I can make that choice - and do, when the content provider lets me decide. I don't watch much broadcast tv, either.

I found this on developers web-site. Maybe this old and only news could be helpful for all of us who has 10.6 :-( "Mon 21 Sep 2009 PithHelmet on Snow Leopard in 64-bit Safari #2:40AM EDT. This is a long story. For the impatient, the short answer is that there will not be a PithHelmet on 64-bit Safari for some time. One of the primary directives for SIMBL and PithHelmet was to "first do no harm." The idea being that hacking up someone else's application should only improve it. Under Snow Leopard, many things have changed and they are almost universally considered improvements. Unfortunately, one of the casualties of these improvements is the relative ease with which applications (in this case Safari) could be hacked after the fact. PithHelmet has grown into an incredibly complex plugin. It hooks into so many subsystems inside Safari, each of which change from time to time. Under Snow Leopard, so much has changed that simply modifying the old code is no longer viable. It will be better to just start fresh. While I am convinced this is the right approach, this is complicated by the fact that there are many changes to GCC, the dynamic linker, the Objective-C runtime, SIMBL and Cocoa itself. This is a tough task and it will take some time, but I feel that releasing something that doesn't work well would be a bigger mistake. So where does this leave you the user? Well, I think the best case scenario is to make PithHelmet compatible when Safari is running in 32-bit mode. The functionality of PithHelmet should be left intact and the sacrifice is some amount of speed, particularly when running Javascript-intensive pages."

Never had that happen before with previous versions though… It's becoming increasingly annoying and making PithHelmet a real pita right now…! I really hope the dev or someone else can come up with a solution for the problem…!?

After updating to Safari 4.0.3 under OS X 10.5.8 on my MBP 17 unibody, I find that sometimes when I open a web page a Finder window also opens, is on top,receives focus, and a zero length file named "blocked" is highlighted. The highlighted file is in the Resources folder of the Phthhelmet.bundle package itself. Behavior is sporadic, but I noticed it first and can replicate it when I visit "http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/169302/mac_news_briefs_drive_genius_ready_for_snow_leopard.html" I don't quite know what to make of this behavior but I don't much like it. None of the web pages affected seem "shady" in any way. Has anyone else experienced this behavior?

I have been using this program for years with no problems and always recieved prompt, helpful responses to my emails to Mike. Now however when I mail my edress to him to get his-spam filtering he say-the roboreply arrives sans his address. I need 2.8.4 to fix the 3.2 Safari disaster but want to know if I have to pay for the upgrade. I have been using Firefox latel;y and it's ad filtering is somewhat affective but the Adobe Flash garbage still comes through slowing everything down and annoying the hell out of me with juddering pics and light I find distracting. Hey Mike, if you read any of this stuff I miss your former persona.

10.4.11/Pithhelmet 2.8.4/Safari 3.2.1 I inadvertently updated to Safari 3.2.1 (without backing up my previous version) today and Pithhelmet crashed Safari every time. After removing the Plugins folder from Library>Application Support>Simbl Safari ran fine. Since I can't live without my Pithhelmet, I had to rollback Safari, which is no easy process. It involved copying 3.1.2 version of the Safari app from another system and removing receipts on my system which is not for the faint of heart. Trust me, you do not want to do this. Just a heads-up to those who might be wondering if Safari 3.2.1 is compatible with this version of Pithhelmet. On my system it's not. I'm also leaving my 10.5.6 systems alone. Pithhelmet trumps Apple every time.

Version: 2.8.4
When Safari 3.2.x arrived I realized how much I rely on Pithhelmet. I downgraded to Safari 3.1.2 with Pithhelmet 2.8.3 due to Safari 3.2.x' instability with InputManagers. I considered making Firefox my #1 browser. For me, Pithhelmet is ESSENTIAL for reasonably happy web browsing using Safari. Ever more gaudy, frenetic moving ads, overlays, etc. make many sites all but unusable. OTOH, I am one of those who does not mind a few ads. Give me static ads relevant to the a site's content and I am good to go. Pithhelmet gives filtering flexibility without being intrusive or hard to configure. And now with Pithhelmet 2.8.4 I can have the Safari 3.2.x security features I desire and the web experience i prefer. Thanks!

Cut the dev a little slack. I'm guessing this was NOT a trivial fix. I paid for PithHelmet too, but when it started crashing things I de-installed it. Safari and WebKit are not trivial applications, and Apple doesn't document them very well to Devs, especially for things like.. ad blocking. In the interim I use Glimmerblocker. Now that Michael has fixed PH, I've installed and disabled it for now....

I'd like to configure PithHelmet to accept cookies from web sites but remove them when quitting Safari, something that can be easily done in iCab or Opera, for example. I've set default site rules' cookie policy to either "use Safari cookie policy" or "allow only from the current site" as well as "discard when application quits" but cookies still remain after closing Safari. I've even tried setting the above cookie policy for sites on an individual basis, but the cookies still remain after closing Safari. Can PithHelmet, in fact, be configured to do the above, or not? Of so, how? Am I missing something? I emailed the developer with this question but he did not reply.

I really like this app, but the main issue for me is the rather slow release of updates. It took an age to get one for Leopard and now Safari 3.1 is causing it problems. I assume the developer is busy with other stuff, but in the end it's just a real nuisance. I'll continue to use it (when the next UD is released) but it would be nice if there was an alternative which worked as well as this does (which there doesn't seem to be).

If you're trying and failing to get v2.7 to work in Tiger with the Safari v3 final that came with 10.4.11 update, you need to open the info.plist in the PithHelmet bundle and change the MaxBundleVersion from 522 to 523.

Took awhile to get this functioning. SIMBL had to be upgraded, and that meant finding and deleting the existing copy. You'll find it in users/(yourname)/library/inputmanagers. Delete the entire SIMBL folder, and your installation will fly. An additional perk - Twicetab suddenly announced itself installed! Anything else SIMBL related likely will, too. Mike, you might but the SIMBL notice somewhere prominent. I thought is was getting installed with PH, like Duct Tape does. PithHelmet is the slickest, most indispensable add on to Safari ever created. Thanks!

Let's all donate $10 to this developer, so he can purchase 0SX 10.5. This has happened in the past and through our assistance Mike was able to recode the software for the next OS X release. I gave $20, so we are only about $110 short, which means we only need eleven people to simply give the minimum donation we would be doing well. I am not friends with the developer, but he writes excellent software and his tech support is outstanding. He responds usually in a few hours or the first thing the next day. Please people I want to install 10.5, but I will not until Pithhelmet is ready. John

People have asked me what OSX software could I not make it without and I tell them Pith Helmet. Please donate, just $10. I don't know the developer, I just want to make certain that he or someone else continues the updates for this software for a long time.

Someone please give feed back on using Pith helmet with the Safari in the shipping version of Leopard. I will not go to Leopard until I am sure there is a pith helmet that will work with the Safari that comes with it.

In regards to the previous comment, the problem is not PithHelmut bu a poorly designed CNN website. The newly designed CNN website will still periodically crash, even if PithHelmut is turned off.

Using with Safari 2.0.4 (419.3) PithHelmet (or CNN) causes safari to crash when viewing most links on CNN.com's newly redesigned website.

Easily the best add-on hack ever. If you use Safari, you need this. You also need to send Mike Solomon $10 to encourage him to work on PithHelmet again.

After installing 2.6.7 page loading has become slower and sometimes the page doesn't load completely. I'm reusing the modified 2.6.6 version now. Anyone else experienced this? 10.4.7 / Safari 2.0.4

the new OSX update 10.4.7 has a new version of Safari and Pithhelmet will NOT work with it !!! The developer should have a new version of Pithhelmet is a couple of days.

It seems 2.6.4 broke support for NetNewsWire.

Breaks Safari's automatic RSS update. After I installed it, Safari 2.0.3 no longer updates my RSS feeds every 30 minutes. Reverting to the factory rules doesn't solve the problem. Telling Pith not to filter content doesn't work either. Removing the pithhelmet.bundle is the only thing that fixes the RSS settings in Safari. Guess I'll have to mess w/ Saft's blocking now.

I can't get the Info.plist hack to work. Can someone who was successful at it put a copy of their Info.plist up on the web and make a link to it? These ads are driving me crazy!

This is by far the best, most useful safari plugin. It dramatically chages the way you surf. Thank you so much.

Pithhelmet is awesome, but i'm wondering if there's any way the developer could rework it so it didn't rely on SIMBL. every time Safari changes, it breaks SIMBL.

I find PithHelmet just about indispensable. Every time I have to do without it I''m horrified by the visual pollution I have to endure. It's also effectively free but I it's well worth a donation. Thank you Mike Solomon.

Yes, I was having the same problem. I would get a warning which said that PithHelmet was not compatible and Safari crashed a lot. I uninstalled and then reinstalled PithHelmet and all is well again. This is an absolute MUST HAVE application.
