Customisable and powerful ad-blocking tool

Adblock Plus is the Safari version of the hugely popular ad blocker for your browser.

On the block

When you are surfing the web, you’ll know how irritating ads can be. They flash, blink and generally get in the way. If you’re really unlucky, they can even be dangerous. Adblock Plus removes ads from the pages you are viewing, leaving a clean, peaceful white space in their wake.

Adblock Plus works using filters. If certain elements are present on a page, the extension filters them out. There are several ready-made filters available, and you can choose however many you want from Adblock Plus’ settings menu.

All blocked up

If you are a little more technically-able, you’ll also be able to create your own filters, or mark previously-unfiltered items by right-clicking on them and choosing Block Element. This is made easier by the developer tools panel that shows blockable items along with applied filters.

Under Adblock Plus’ settings options you’ll also be able to add certain websites to whitelists (to exempt them from blocking) and toggle a few other options. You’ll also see the Adblock Plus icon in the address bar, and by clicking it you’ll be able to enable and disable Adblock Plus in a single click.

Been around the block

If you’re bothered by ads while on the internet, try Adblock Plus. You won’t regret it.
