Any recommendations for a good ad blocker please for safari?
Will either one of them work with Safari 12?
Exactly! Just upgraded and I used to use the free AD Block but it won't work now as it's not supported anymore in safari 12
Same here, Safari 12 does not like Adguard extension any longer.
I'm also having problems! Ghostery no longer works and AdBlock Plus doesn't work. It says they will slow down my browsing so I uninstalled them. I'm not sure what to do. Safari has loads of my saved passwords so I don't want to change browser.
When I upgraded to Safari 12 it disabled UBlock Origin. I re-enabled it. Of course it slows browsing...it's a filter!
It doesn't slow down "reading".
Wipr is already prepared for Safari 12 - only one I know so far
You need AdBlock v 1.9 for Safari 12. It works.
Just go back to the extensions window and re-enable (same for uBlock and Ghostery).
You can re-enable Ad Block Plus but it will throw up an error after a bit. Clicking on the dialog to make it go away seems to work until the next time you have to re-start Safari 12.
I'm going to give "Ka-Block" a try. Thanks @Weaselboy.
I don't think any of the App-based blockers can block video ads. This is crazy.
Thank you Weaselboy, just installed Ka-Block extension and working great so far! And it's FREE!!!
Thank you so much
Yeah my old ad blocker pro quit as well after updating to Safari 12. Went to extension App Store and downloaded the free Skynet: AD blocker for Safari version 12. Works great!
Dead, probably. No updates to its codebase in git since April.
I have just re-enabled AD Blocker, seems to be working fine.
Its worth it just to get rid of those annoying red and white arrows that keep popping up in the bottom right hand corner of this website every time you scroll up or down. Tried KA-Block but i couldn't get rid of the red and white arrows when using that blocker.
Those red arrows are actually there for convenience and in no way are an advertisement or otherwise. Sometimes when I'm reading through a long thread and finish and want to get back to the top, the red up arrow saves me scrolling with my mouse or trackpad.
Looks like AdBlock Plus is still usable in Safari, but it installs via the App Store now.
Apple wiped out all of the good free ad blockers after the latest safari update.
What the heck? I tried a couple but they do nothing. Not only that but the new ones require downloading the application into the application folder.

Neither works in Yahoo Mail. The old ad blocker worked perfectly, why did Apple screw it up?

I found adblock plus using the search feature in apps.
However, in order for any of them to work I discovered you have to click on safari-settings for this website-allow content blocking. You have to do this for every freaking website
How bizarre that we can't just make this a default.
Found a way:
Safari-Preferences-websites-content blockers-when visiting other websites-toggle to ON
Apple should make this default, IMO. Why do they want Mac Users to be bothered nonstop with Ads and make it difficult to control?
Thanks. It looks like once you set it, it becomes the default.
Those that use Wipr on mac is it a set it and forget it ad blocker?
Do I need to open the app or anything every time I use Safari or need to update it.
Its Setup and forget. You might once in a while check if its up to date. Updating is not always working flawless
https://pi-hole.net just going to put this here, it's a little more work but kills everything
