Sorry for the lack of posts over the last couple of days, University has got really busy and I had no free time at all to do any post. The weekend however has arrived and I have some free time to do some work. Todays post will be about blocking adverts on websites while using Safari. I find that adverts on web pages are getting more an more annoying and some, inevitably, need to be removed from view.
This plugin for Safari is very similar to one for Firefox, called Adblock Plus. They are both designed to block adverts from view. These can include those really annoying half page ones that pop up, or adverts that make no sense and you don’t want to see. Its also very useful if you run on a limited connection and want to save the bandwidth. Some, especially Flash, adverts take up a lot of bandwidth and you may want to remove them.
To install Safar Adblock, head over to this website. Here you can download and install the plugin. You do need Mac OS X 10.5+ and if you are a Snow Leopard user you have to run Safari in 32-bit mode for the plugin to work. Its a useful little plugin which enables your web surfing to be clutter free.
If you have a similar Safari plugin or one you want to share, please leave a comment below. If you want to learn more from Safari I recommend Mac OS X Snow Leopard: The Missing Manual.
