…besides the people who run the web-sites and rely upon funding from their advertisers, obviously (little downside).
But do you really want to see those ads? I don’t. And I used to avoid them by using AdBlock, a Firefox extension that blocked all ads from appearing. But that was in the days of my using Firefox; I’ve been using Safari lately (Safari is Apple’s browser). Some people still prefer to use Firefox with their Mac, but I found Safari to be faster and just a bit prettier, honestly.
But I missed AdBlock! I hate ads. Ads slow down your web experience, clutter pages, and are generally a pain in the “bo-hunk” (that’s a word my mom uses…I wanted to include it). So how do you get the AdBlock experience in Safari?
SafariBlock blows ads up. Take a look at the BBC Football page, with SafariBlock deactivated, then activated.
And with it activated…
Notice anything missing? Ahhhhh, yes…a beautiful thing, this SafariBlock is. It comes in really handy when you don’t want to see all of those ads that are…”seductive,” shall we say?
So, yeah. Download it. Now.
