    I tried to recompile Safari AdBlock to be a 64bit universal to work with Snow Leopards Safari since it looks like the developers aren't around anymore. I was able to recompile it just fine but Safari still doesn't load it. Is there something I'm missing here? I thought you just had to make it 64bit and it would pick it up.

    The usual hack loading mechanisms don't work in 64 bit. You'll need to do some additional work to convert it over to a wrapper app + DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES, or a scripting addition, or something along those lines.

    I see. From some research it looks like Apple doesn't provide any real plugin support past the traditional flash type. So most plugins have resorted to using hacks.
