recommend some useful safari extensions
And the best ad blocker in safari
i use https://getadblock.com . works like a charm
Didn't this company get sold to an ad agency recently
i don't care. i never see ads with it. and i see PLENTY if i pause it. works great. if that changes i'll switch. not for now though.
This is not a good look cause Adblock plus gets paid to allow ads
From what I read
until it blocks all the ads and ESPECIALLY video ads on youtube - i'll use it. and i can recommend it to others. at least for now
I read this so often, but it’s simply not true. They set up rules for acceptable ads and every ad that doesn’t comply with this won’t be whitelisted. They do ask money from the biggest advertising services, like Google and Microsoft, but they aren’t taking bribes or anything. Most advertising agencies don’t have to pay anything and you can’t buy your way in either. There is no evidence that suggests Adblock Plus is deceiving their users. Either you opt-out and won’t see any ads or you accept some ads, but not annoying ones. If they were lying in relation to both, they wouldn’t be so popular.
On topic (some of these you have to search for elsewhere):
Ghostery: blocks third-party trackers (more than just advertising)
NoMoreiTunes: prevents Safari from opening iTunes automatically
Text2Link: turns unclickable URLs on websites into hyperlinks
Link Text Selector: lets you temporarily turn a hyperlink into plain text to copy the link text
Clean Links for Google / DirectLinks: removes the click trackers on Google web search that Google uses to record your clicking behaviour
i don't want any acceptable ads thank you
OPT OUT in the setting, gosh you're hard
i don't want that extension,let it go
Basically all the ones Apple are advertising on their page. They work well with their iOS and Mac apps.
Also adblock plus. Seriously.
Ad Block - setting allow you to block all Ads. I've used for years and have always been pleased.
let it go, he simply doesn't want it. no reason, just no
this is an extension that lets you upload images to imgur by right-clicking an image/share upload to imgur
Within OS X apps that support image sharing, click the share icon (or cmd-click for the Share… menu) and select ‘Upload to Imgur’. After confirmation, the image will be uploaded anonymously to Imgur, you will receive a messagebox with the image url.
it doesn't take you to the imgur website, a popup comes up with copy link
Is there a YouTube extension that makes embedded YouTube videos in forums play in the highest quality when you press play , in safari
For ads, I've been using uBlocker for a while and works like a charm, no ads anywhere, using just a few filters. Otherwise 1Password is a must for me too.
LOVE Ghostery! YouTubeWide, HoverSee, and Blur are a few more I haven't seen listed.
clicktoplugin the html5 player only goes up to 720p
anyway to make it play 1080p ?
BackTrack Safari Extension is an extension for Safari that enables you to right-click images to find out where else they appear on the web, or click the toolbar item to search for all the images on a page.
useful to right click an image on web and "search Google"
tested and working in el capitan
For blocking ads, I've found uBlock to be most resource efficient and seamless.
If you're using El Capitan, use any of the new content blockers like Wipr, Ka-block! etc.
For managing sessions automatically, I use the sessions extension. Works pretty well.
I use these:
So let it be written, so let it be done...
uBlock - Best ad blocker around. Nothing comes close. (I'm willing to try the new Content Blockers again, but I think they need time to mature and be able to block youtube ads and other video ads without a hiccup.)
ShutUp - Because I cannot stand to have to see the idiot opinions of others in the comment section of articles, it blocks them completely. I've noticed I'm a happier person without having to read such drivel.
LastPass- Because I use Android and Windows as well, so iCloud keychain has no point for me.
I'm always on the lookout for others that might be fun, but I worry that loading too many will slow browsing down.
