Disclaimer: This is not a thread about how to get rid of ads in general! So please don't wasteland, it even if it mentions some adblocking techniques. Background: I've been using Safari 2.0 since upgrading to Tiger. And I'm very happy with it. It seems to be working with my internet bank (which 1.3 didn't do), the RSS feature is awesome, they've finally added a "send link"-function and after I installed Taboo Safari now asks me if I really want to quit when I have more than one tab open. But I really want to get rid of those annoying flash ads some sites have in abundance. I know about Pithelmet, but when I tried the newest version yesterday, it froze my Safari twice in the 15 minutes I tried it, not to mention that I'm not that keen on paying for 3rd party Safari hacks. It didn't look too easy to configure, either, and I'm a computer engineer. Over at Pimp My Safari I also came across a method of making a userContents.css file, but I found that this method took out all ads on all sites, except flash ads, and specially those started from scripts. The exact opposite of what I'm after. The real downside with both those methods is, as mentioned before, that I'm not looking for an ad blocker, per se, I don't mind text ads or even animated gifs, but I hate flash ads, and especially flash ads with sound or those new ones spawning pop-ups/-unders. They are a real pain in more than one body part. All of my filters in Firefox' Adblock follows the pattern: "*some.adprovider.domain/*.swf*", and I even have a generic "*.ad*.swf*", which is very effective. I've also tried editing the /etc/hosts file, and although that got rid of some, many others, specially those triggered from scripts, got through. Even if they originated from domains I had blocked. Un-checking "Enabling plug-ins" under Security in Safari preferences helps, but is not really an option as it kills of all objects, even text or movie ones. So the question is: Does anybody know about a Flash blocker (or very configurable ad blocker á la the Adblock extension in Firefox) for Safari 2.0? This feature is now the only thing I miss enough to keep me from switching back to Safari permanently (of course I miss the Search-bar in Firefox, too, but not enough).
