    I was sad to see Adblock not available as an extension. Has anyone found an alternative?

    It's available and working fine. You're probably looking at the beta extensions site; just go to the original one. However, until it's all settled, Safari 9 won't auto-update extensions from the non-beta site.

    I don't see ANY ad blocking extensions available from Safari 9 in El Cap.
    But, I already had 3 different ad blockers installed in Safari from before I updated to beta. All appear to work. But, they were previously installed, and none are showing as available for downloading through the internal Extensions tab.
    The previous posters probably have the best idea. Try getting directly from the Ad Block site, or whatever others you might want to try.

    They're not on the beta extensions site, but are all still available (along with everything else) on the main site here https://extensions.apple.com

    If you go to the https://getadblock.com website you can download it. Then click on it and it will install itself in Safari

    Ublock, which was posted earlier, will block ads on YouTube as well as other parts of the internet. I can't speak for Twitch, as I don't use the site.

    Yep. It is also quite lightweight and block YouTube ads effectively. I don’t even bother recommending Adblock Plus or Adblock anymore.

    It remains to be seen which adblocker will be the first to support Safari’s new content blocking extension.
