    I recently updated to the newest version of Safari AdBlock, and while it does block some ads, it misses many of them. Am I the only one with this issue? If so, is there a fix? Help would be appreciated.

    I had heard some negative things about the new version, so I elected to stay with v 2.1. If it ain't broke... don't fix it!

    My mistake.... I was referring to SafariBlock. Thanks! Woof!

    I can't even download the current version of Safari AdBlock... keeps getting a redirect to http://burgersoftware.com/en/safariadblock/download which shows "503 - Service Not Available". Maybe they found a problem with the release and took it offline to fix it.

    What happened to the old link? http://safariadblock.sourceforge.net

    I've been using Safari AdBlock since I've had Macs and for some reason 0.4.0 RC2 has stopped working on a few websites today.

    I've been having the same issue. A lot of the sites I frequent and were previously blocked have all sorts of ads popping up now. I don't know what is going on, but it is definitely broken. Anybody contacted the dev?

    You can also just make custom filters to block specific ads.
