    "What is this I don't even"

    December 26, 2010  |   By lucascaldhxc

    Version: Safari AdBlock 0.4.0 RC3

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing.

    Cons

    It doesn't even seem to exist except for the fact that its disk image is in my downloads folder.

    Summary

    Logged onto an imageboard this morning, and it seemed somebody had hacked it and programmed in some annoying ass Christmas music and santa hat .gifs over the place where every photo would be. I have never been more annoyed in my life. So I asked how to get rid of it, and somebody said adblock had an option to block specific things like that. I guess he must've meant the windows version, because this literally does not do anything of the sort . . . in fact it doesn't seem to do anything at all. I am very, very disappointed. And, if anybody can tell me how to get rid of this annoying Christmas stuff somehow, nothing would make me happier. Especially anybody who /b/, that's the origin of the issue.

    November 11, 2010  |   By Bristol1000

    Version: Safari AdBlock 0.4.0 RC3

    Pros

    Works great, I downloaded from apple.

    There is nothing I don't like about this program

    "Doesnt work"

    August 19, 2010  |   By fairhsa

    Version: Safari AdBlock 0.4.0 RC3

    Pros

    None. None. How many characters does it take to say none?

    Cons

    Useless. More useless (to fill up characters)

    Summary

    Installed it, went to a site that usually blocks fine in firefox - no effect. Waste of time.

    "not a standard Mac program, nor a Safari plug-in"

    July 11, 2010  |   By jhencken

    Version: Safari AdBlock 0.4.0 RC3

    Pros

    Not sure, can't see any effet yet

    Cons

    Easy to install but not to remove. Doesn't do what its Windows counterpart does. Not sure if it does anything. It installed, but now I can't find it!

    Summary

    It's so "simple" and "transparent" I can't tell it's there, nor can I figure out how to remove it! :-( Unlike the Win version, it won't block flash ads, which is what I wanted it for to begin with.

    "Doesn't seem to do the job. Disappointed!"

    July 11, 2010  |   By trabster

    Version: Safari AdBlock 0.4.0 RC3

    Pros

    Installs easily.

    Cons

    Doesn't seem to do the job it was designed to do.

    Summary

    I have a hackintosh (Dell 10v) running OSX 10.5.8. I installed AdBlock 0.4.0. Restarted. Went back to the problem site, and no difference. Ads galore. Very frustrating! Going to look for something else because this clearly isn't doing it.

    "Works great"

    April 29, 2010  |   By veggiepsychic

    Version: Safari AdBlock 0.4.0 RC3

    Pros

    At the websites I have visited so far, the ads are gone. I have a Mac Book w/Snow Leopard.

    Cons

    None at all

    Summary

    The first install didn't work for some reason which was from Cnet. I did go to the apple website and downloaded there and it worked. Who knows what it was...magic or just a little glitch.

    "Doesn't Work"

    February 7, 2010  |   By TheDudeandHis360

    Version: Safari AdBlock 0.4.0 RC3

    Pros

    For Firefox works great, blocks ads

    Cons

    Doesn't work in Safari.

    Summary

    This version of AdBlock only if you run Safari in 32-bit mode. The question is, of course, why would you take a browser that runs natively in 64-bit in Snow Leopard and force it to run in 32-bit mode? Unacceptable. If you can't make a plugin that works correctly with the latest version of OS X you shouldn't have made it at all.
