    Safari 3.2.1 breaks PithHelmet.
    PithHelmet's developer does not seem to be going to release an update.
    Safari is useless without PithHelmet to block ads, animation, have custom settings per web site, etc.
    Are there any other applications that doe what PithHelmet does and work in MacOSX 10.4.11?
    I've tried Shaft before and not liked it. Others?

    SafariBlock is basic but functional... I don't know that it's been updated terribly recently either, though.

    I thought any talk of ad blocking software was against forum rules, but as a mod has chimed in, I'll add my tuppenceworth;

    GlimmerBlocker is great; its a standalone app so doesn't give as many problems as the plugins do. Its been working well for me for a few weeks now, and you can do all sorts of things with it that are far beyond my skills.
