Adblock Plus Available For Safari

The Adblock Plus add-on is now available for every major browser

Cologne, Germany – January 21, 2014 – Adblock Plus, the #1 most popular browser extension for blocking annoying online advertisements, today announced that Adblock Plus for Safari is officially available for download worldwide. Mac owners are now free to rejoice in their own ad-free web experience.

With the inclusion of Safari, the Adblock Plus add-on is now available for every major browser: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari--and also Android mobile OS.

Adblock Plus lets users choose whether to block all ads or allow certain Acceptable Ads to be whitelisted in order to support free content. In all cases, Adblock Plus blocks annoying banner ads and pop-ups on web pages, video ads on YouTube, and intrusive ads on Facebook.

"Our goal is to make the Internet better for everyone by empowering people to block obnoxious ads while simultaneously encouraging websites to run user-friendly, responsible advertisements instead of intrusive banners, overlays, and pop-ups," said Till Faida, co-founder of Adblock Plus and the open source project that supports it. "Users can still opt to block all ads, or they can whitelist certain sites that they want to support. We created Adblock Plus to give every user control over which kinds of ads they are willing to accept, and then we block all the rest."

Faida continued, "The Adblock Plus add-on works on all current versions of Safari and is backwards-compatible to version 6.0 (standard version with OSX Mountain Lion). The current version is a stable beta; it's been thoroughly tested, but we are still hoping to get valuable user feedback to optimize performance."
