Works very well but can be improved (May 10th). Update - Blocks every ad on every site I go to 6/28 - I had adblock plus as my safari adblocker and i was just tired of seeing it not block any twitch ads, and on some websites it wouldnt eliminate the ad box where the ads would have been if it werent for the blocker. This adblocker is working great on all site that i ahve visited, by getting rid of the ads and the ad boxes where the ads once were. However im still getting hit with some twitch ads (sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt; it is a hit or a miss). So this adblocker definitely isnt ublock origin (which is my adblocker on chrome & firefox), but it does get the job done for what it is worth if you are still trying to use safari for battery life on macbooks. if this app can block all twitch ads like ublock origin i will give this a 5 star review instead of a 4 star review. Keep up the great work devs! Oh, and once last thing, safari does feel a lot snappier since installing this adblocker (defintely faster than adblock plus). Update 6/28/2020 - It seems that this adblocker now blocks Twitch ads and I couldn't be happier. Just increased my score from a 4 to a 5. This is the must have adblocker for Safari hands down!
Clicking contact us link takes you to write a review - This appears to be the only way to get app support. Clicking the Support button on the app website will open your Music app on your Mac. Clicking the Contact Us link on the app website is a link to write a review. Installed the Safari extension on my Mac, and the app opened a window with a short video tutorial. After enabling the extension, it says to return to the tutorial window to continue. I've quit and reopened Safari, I've logged out, I've restarted the Mac, nothing changes. Clicking the tabs at the top of the tutorial window does nothing. All you get is the video tutorial of how to check the boxes in Safari extensions to turn it on. Right-clicking the Safari share button does not show any way to manage settings, and there is no way to customize the rules for number 6 checkbox of the extension. It does block ads, but there is nothing else you can do, and no way to contact them for support other than with an app store review.

Please - Please make it so this app either goes undetected or works on web searches other than google. I can not tell you how many webpages have been whitelisted because while ads are hidden i have no idea if it’s because the app worked or if it’s due to the footprint of the app being noticed by killadblock because almost every website politely tells me that I have to disable your app to continue on their site. Oddly enough even when Adblock Pro has cellular data turned off and my phone isn’t connected to WiFi the app is still infecting it’s scripts into the web pages I visit and I will continue having to disable app/whitelist site to view/read whatever I had gone to the site for. Any page found through a search done on Bing won’t open. So yeah please fix the app I don’t want to have to delete it and I doubt that’s what you want since you’ll be unable to obtain further ad based data to sell to make money.
Works well, but recently youtube ad block not functioning - as of a few days ago, theres a white screen before every youtube video and a "skip ad" option. Before, i did not see any ad, not sure if youtube changed their code or this app needs updating to block youtube ads, but i hope this comes soon

worked perfectly for a while until... - It worked perfectly. Just as advertized. Then, literally as I thought I'll write a review today, it started behaving weird. Youtube gets a plain white screen and a skip add button. This, by itself is annoying, but doesn't affect playback, as the advertisement times out. But on other websites such as Udemy, the video comes to the 0:00 mark and stops. I have to take the video scrubber, and drag it to 0:01, to get the video started. This happens for every video, and is quite annoying! Please fix it.
Waste of money. - I. Had been using purify, which did a pretty good job of stopping the bombardment of adds, and figured I’d spend the $10 and get something even better. I made my decision based on the reviews that I read on here. I should’ve known better. Now I get way more adds and am $10 poorer. Oh well...back to FREE Purify.
