    hey all i'm running a macbook pro with tiger 10.4.11 and I use safari as my browser (firefox/opera on special occassions) While i love the speed and ease safari provides....the ad blocking doesn't cut it! i've stumbled on a few sites that destroy my good vibes with annoying ads. Any suggestions on a plugin or something to improve my browsing experience?

    I'd recommend switching to Firefox. The Adblock there is the best in the business. :^)

    I find firefox combined with the adblock plus with it's subscription service enabled and the flashblock extensions work wonders. To further enhance my experience I use Menu Editor and edit this about:config setting.

    If you are not into Firefox, you could try Camino. It's still Mozilla, but with the OS X look. It also has better built-in adblock and flashblock than Safari. It's not as good as Firefox with its plugins, but it's much better than Safari. On top of that, it's still fast. Some even say faster than Safari.

    Just give it a try at http://caminobrowser.org/ or for the latest stable alpha http://preview.caminobrowser.org/

    Recently there have been more programs available for Safari. I used to use Firefox and I have since switched to Safari because I find it to be much snappier (not joking this time). Look for Adblock for Safari, or you can look for PithHelmet, both are good, though I like Adblock better.

    My vote goes to PithHelmet, its definitely the best ad-blocker out there :)
