Blocks ads in Safari.

Overview

AdBlock has been downloaded more than 250 million times and is used by more than 65 million people worldwide. Now, AdBlock has created a powerful ad blocker that’s available as a Mac app.

AdBlock for Safari s a powerful and simple-to-use adblocker. It stops annoying pop-ups, removes autoplay video ads and blocks obnoxious audio ads. It also gives you control over which ads you see and what websites you support. You can tell AdBlock to stop working on certain websites, "whitelist" sites you want to support, and get easy access to a comprehensive library of customer support information to help you get the most out of your AdBlock app.

AdBlock helps websites load faster in Safari and protects you from malware lurking inside ads on malicious websites. It’s easy to install and free to use. Give it a try!

Key features:
  • Block ads on the websites you visit, including Facebook, YouTube and millions of others
  • Speed up your browsing by filtering out unwanted content with Apple’s powerful Content Blocking API
  • Protect yourself from annoying and intrusive ads that distract you from the stories you are trying to read

Note: While the software is classified as free, it offers in-App Purchases.

I tried ABP (Adblock Plus - not listed here for some reason) for a few weeks... don't waste your time. I get Zegnet ads everywhere. Safari Adblock is better.

When I upgraded Safari security features, for some reason Ad Block Plus was removed. So I installed Ad Block. Unfortunately, Ad Block (NOT to be confused with Ad Block Plus) did NOT block a single ad. When I installed it dozens of ads immediately came thru. :( Fortunately, after I then reinstalled the new Ad Block Plus it worked well. Though, I miss the old ABP feature of showing you in red fast increasing numbers, how many ads it was removing. The new doesn't do this, though it does seem to take them out.

This doesn't do anything. There is the same if not more ads than before I downloaded it. Also I found this in the app preferences: Can read sensitive information from including passwords, phone numbers and credit cards on: ALL WEBPAGES

As far as I"m concerned, AdBlock's ability to block ANY HTML ELEMENT ON A PAGE was its best feature and greatest attraction. I"ve asked repeatedly if/when the functionality will reappear, and haven't received a satisfactory response, one way or the other, from customer support. (By the way... Anybody ever see another app that charges for a quick response from customer support? Considering that "AdBlock has been downloaded more than 250 million times and is used by more than 65 million people worldwide," you'd think the cheap whiner could afford to hire at least a second person!)

This is getting even more confusing.

There seems to be a NEW "Adblock 2.70.0 from betafish, inc" (as opposed to its name here at MU: "Safari Adblock") that's been released today. And it seems to work good in the latest Safari (in Sierra), so far.

But there is still an "Adblock 1.10.0 from Adblock" that is awful.

What concerns me is the Safari preference pane for this extension: ""AdBlock" can read, modify, and transmit content from all webpages. This could include sensitive information like past, phone numbers, and credit cards." !!! So you want to get rid of one vulnerability only to openly accept a much greater one?? Seems obtuse. I really don' know why Apple allows this. For one thing there are other extensions that do not have this warning....
