Man Safari is reallllly fast in Leopard. But I think my eyes are burning out looking at all these ads.

Is there a compatible Ad-Blocker?
Something to force all links to open in tabs?
Something to stop all the pop-ups? yes it's enabled.

*sigh*. I'm so spoiled by firefox.

I still can't believe that something as fundamental as sorting bookmarks isn't there. Netscape Navigator had it in the 90s :rolleyes:

PithHelmet is a good ad blocker.

Edit. to the op; where are you seeing pop-ups?

I heard that pithhelmet doesn't work in leopard?
or is there a workaround?

I guess there is a beta version for safari 3-- but it may or may not work in leopard, and regardless it still doesn't have full functionality yet.

however... its good to know that pithhelmet is going to be improved to support safari 3 and leopard!! hooray !! (previous i checked, it didn't seem like that was going to happen)

Jeez. Hasn't anyone heard of Privoxy? It rocks, and it works for all browsers you have installed since it runs as a proxy service, independent of your browsers. You don't need browser specific plugins like AdBlocker, PithHelmet, etc.

BTW: for Leopard you'll need to follow these instructions for getting it to autostart on boot.

Sadly Saft and Inquisitor don't work yet......sure updates are coming as Leopard only came out yesterday.
Inquisitor does.

You have to remove the ~/Library/InputManager folder
Install the files to /Library/InputManagers instead, and then change the owner of the files to root:admin

Just google "InputManager Leopard" for more info.

Yes, the instructions in the link works for Leopard. That is what I'm using.

I've never thought to uninstall it. It's one of the first things I install. I suppose just removing the /Library/Privoxy directory and /Library/StartupItems/Privoxy directories should do it.

I don't understand what you are saying.

You did use the Mac OS X installer, right? Follow the instructions in Quick Start for setting your HTTP proxy (you do this in the Network preference panel...click Advanced, then the Proxies tab to find the HTTP proxy). Then you should be golden...

BTW: if you have .Mac, add mac.com to the "Bypass proxy settings" field.

foxtor is a plugin for firefox that uses proxies. i can't use it because privoxy is running. I did use the MAC installer and it is installed. I'm trying to remove it. but i don't know how, if i go in to the libraries folders there are no folders named privoxy and nothing comes up in search.

Are you looking in the system library (and not your user library)? Privoxy installs in /Library/Privoxy and /Library/StartupItems/Privoxy.

Even installed, it should only affect proxies pointing to 127.0.0.1:8118
