I downloaded Aguard for safari from the app store and it downloaded and installed eight separate extensions! They are Adguard Advanced blocking, Adguard Custom, Adguard general, Adguard other, Adguard Privacy, Adguard Safari Icon, Adguard security, and Adguard social.

Does anyone have any idea why all of these were installed? Shouldn't it be just one extension?

Thank you in advance!

I guess they consider themselves the Microsoft Office of Safari Extensions.

It's eight separate extensions plus an application in your Applications folder.

If you want to remove the extensions you have to uninstall the Application…so you should probably get "AppCleaner" or something similar to remove the App, Extensions and extraneous files and folders it has created.

Thank you for your reply!

I installed this because I was constantly getting the error message "This website is using significant memory/energy. closing it may improve the responsiveness of your mac."

Which of them can I uninstall? Do I need the application (in my applications folder) for it to work in Safari?

I do have appcleaner.

Thank you!

The extensions are seperate as Mobile Safari has a 50.000 rules limit. AdGuard avoids that limit by using several extensions. 1Blocker and others do that too

If you need an ad blocker use Ka-Block!. One extension, no more.

It actually doesn't have options. Just block the ads and that's all. Maybe, the only problem that I find with ka-block is that don't block youtube ads.
