Blocking banners and popups well. No need to re-configure browsers or proxy settings, get full control in ADGate Preferences. Though require some knowledge of HTML.

... and here I am again, after some extensive trouble-shooting. AdGate 3.5.1 no longer causes the kernel panics the way that 3.5.0 did. Thus, I would urge everyone with the same sort of trouble to upgrade to Adgate 3.5.1 if your primary browser is Safari. Also, the web address for Hao Li's website should be changed to http://haoli.dnsalias.com/ The present address listed above is 404.

I have used AdGate for ages, and love the efficiency with which it removes ads. However, I recently started running into trouble with it, specifically while using OS X 10.3.7 Under OSX 10.3.7 and the version of Safari that ships with it, I could cause a kernel panic (!!!) whenever I browsed to ebay.com with Safari (all other browsers were OK). Once I turned off AdGate, the issues disappeared. I will try the clean-up suggestions next, as I suspect that cookies and their ilk may be involved. However, I have yet to understand how an application like AdGate could help to cause a kernel panic.

AdGate can take a little time to get "trained" but then it is wonderful. After a day or two, just look at its "preferences" window to see how many nasty ads it has blocked.

Well, I think I might have solved some of the system crash issues. It is a very good possibility that I ended up with some bad cookies while looking up items in EBay and other sites. So, I deleted all of the ad cookies I could find in Internet Explorer's cookie list. Then, I clicked on "Explorer/Preferences/Recieving Files/Cookies" and clicked on "ask for each site" under "When recieving cookies". I am going to use this to determine which cookies I accept, and which ones I decline while surfing. If all of the above works, then I would recommend that the information be included in AdGate's help file. This would be very encouraging if it solves my computer's mail problems as well! I want to emphasize that Hao Li has the best application written for the Mac for blocking unwanted advertisements. I will not give up on this application. If the stability issues can be solved for my system, then this program is a tops in ALL categories, with no regrets. MrCoffee

Check README and ADGate Help about how to use and uninstall it - save you much time than asking around here. And you do not block for each URL - too much job and too stupid. Just find patterns for URLs, say every URLs with /click in them, then add an URL pattern: */click*.

Does anyone know how to undo this blocking? Many websites are now missing crucial graphics. AFAIK all I did was run the program, look around the interface and quit. I threw the program out.

More than that- it has 'blocked' graphics I didn't in any way intend to block, even though I've dragged the app to the trash and only used it for a minute or two.

If it really freezes and crashes on Mail or eBay pages, I'm not interested. From reading the translated documentation it appears this program requires a lot of work: copying and pasting image URL's to AdGate? (I'm not even sure if that's how it would work. Since English isn't the developer's language it's hard to tell.) Would be great if a CM item appeared that said "Block This Image". WebFree used to work that way...

It does an excellent job. However, some system crashes are likely to occur if using Mail and AdGate at the same time. AdGate has caused the system to freeze while accessing EBay. It is the best thing going for the Mac, however. Still, it would be good to see more stability.
