    What's the best adblock extension for safari? I know ublock is seen as the best for Chrome (little memory used) but Safari on PB3 has just convinced me to return to using Safari again

    Having used ublock on Chrome for a while now - and have noticed the differences in speed of browsing compared to adblock/adblock plus - what would you recommend for Safari?

    I use AdBlock extension and it works great. I used to have both AdBlock and Ghostery installed when I had Mavericks. But I didn't try to install it on Yosemite yet.

    I've successfully run Adblock and DoNotTrackMe on Safari in all the Betas, currently Beta 3.

    Both Adblock and Adblock+ work well with Safari/Yosemite. What isn't working at the moment is ClickToFlash. At least it's not for me. Everything is loading and playing. :(

    The Safari Preferences/Security/Allow Plugins/WebSite Settings... is set to "Allow" for Adobe Flash by default, change that to "Ask", "Block", or whatever you prefer.

    BTW its "Ask" on Mavericks by default I believe.

    Only one I know is AdBlock
    It's probably best to use the most popular one because you get better ad filtering. The more people use it, the more ads are covered.
