SafariBlock: Enhanced Ad Blocking Features for Safari

Ever since its launch, Safari has effectively blocked intrusive popup ads, yet it has struggled to handle in-page advertisements. Unlike Safari, Firefox benefits from a robust plug-in system and a dedicated community, which has led to the development of the AdBlock add-on.

This add-on enables users to block an ad on a webpage permanently by simply right-clicking on it. For those who prefer Safari, there’s now a solution that offers similar ad-blocking capabilities.

SafariBlock, developed by FSB Software, replicates the Firefox AdBlock feature by allowing users to right-click and filter out ads, enhancing the browsing experience. The latest update has even made it compatible with the Safari 3 beta, expanding its accessibility.

It’s important to note that SafariBlock operates as an InputManager.
