Focus by Firefox works fine
Thanks but are there any apps that block ads and work with Safari, not a separate browser?
Will definitely give it a whirl in any case,
Adguard with just the Safari and Easylist filters works.
Im dumb this can also be just an ad blocker in settings got it
Thanks will keep around as a backup in case Firefox works slow or weird,
I'm pretty sure Crystal works. I've been using it since they allowed Safari extensions and as far as I know it's worked in every iOS version, including betas.
EDIT: Doesn’t work!
I don't know whether Crystal works or not in this beta but there are exceptional circumstances right now. A bug in the way extensions work mean adblockers are taking a lot more memory and may not be able to load. That's why I mentioned a specific filter set for Adguard - any more and it will simply fall to load and block ads.
Crystal isn't working for me, anecdotal as this may be.
Get a Raspberry Pi 3 and install "Pi-Hole" (you need some basic bash command knowledge, a child could do this, it's not hard.):
Had mine running for a year, works like a dream on the Roku.
You guys are right, it doesn’t work. I’m not sure why I thought it did. I’ve turned it off for now.
Purify seems to work
Didn't realise just how much overtime my ad blockers have been working to strip out the ads.
I am currently running 1Blocker on my iPhone while my iPad runs the public beta and the difference in browsing experience is like night and day. Pages load on my iPhone almost instantaneously and feel so light and smooth.
I am sorely tempted to downgrade my iPad just so I can use ad blockers once again, but am also hoping public beta 2 fixes this.
I guess I could wait a couple more days.
Solution posted above. Adguard + Safari and Easylist filters works fine. Been running that since day one of DP1
Tried that a few days ago. Not really a perfect solution, as I am still getting blank spaces where the ads used to be, plus some ads still sneak through. So it's still pretty jarring to the whole browsing experience.
Not to mention the whole design of the ad guard app stinks.
Do Vpn based blockers work?
Sure. The filter that cuts out the blank space is too memory intensive to run while this bug exists. I haven’t spotted any ads but of course it depends on the web pages you visit.
I never really interact with the app from one year to another but, now that you mention it, it is kinda crappy.
AdGuard Pro (pseudo VPN) works like a charm.
Thanks for the recommendation. Seems to work fine for me too.
NeverAds works well
Focus by Firefox can be used as both an ad blocker (you have to activate through settings) or as a standalone browser. In my experience is the best free ad blocker.
Purify is the only blocker that I know of that has been updated to work correctly with iOS 11.
You're right. It wasn't working before but now it's working even though the app hasn't been updated since April.
Except all of the others listed above that work.
Better is working well for me still. I had some issues with it on Developer Beta 1, but it’s been fine after re-installing it.
1Blocker works for me..... BUT.... I had to follow a few steps to get it to work.
1. Close safari
2. In settings>Safari>content blockers>Switch off.
3. Hit the back arrow to go back to settings
4. Launch 1blocker... it will try to update and give a communication error
5. Go back into Settings> Safari> content blockers and enable 1Blocker
6. Launch safari
This worked on both DP1 and DP2 on my iPhone 7+ and iPad Pro 9.7
