Dramatically Better Than Alternatives
While uBlock Origin may have been the best ad block plugin for Safari prior to the new App Store method, GhostryLite is almost as good. I've tried AdBlock, AdBlock Plus, Ka-Block, etc. and all either break websites are or too slow to be useable as they load complex sites with lots of ads. AdBlock for Safari is my second choice after Ghostry. Ghostry is extremely fast and accurate. The only thing that could make Ghostry better is to do a better job of collapsing blocked ads which currently show mostly as empty squares taking up space on the screen, otherwise nearly perfect! For those overly concerned about security and the pugins access to your private web info (as I am), you can simply enable the 'content blocker' extension in Safari and leave unchecked the 'UI' extension, Ghostry will continue to work just fine this way - note this is true for all ad blockers using the new extention method that have both an engine/blocker and a UI extension.
Comparable functionality to uBlock Origin
Ghostery add blocker is the best replacement I could find for uBlock Origin so far. It has been a challenge to replace uBlock Origin, I have tried most of the options in the Mac App Store, such as AdBlock, Better, and more. Most had one issue or another. So far, Ghostery Lite has most of the features that I need. The default filter options work good, and they have a custom filter option too. Their user interface is also easy to use and shows some basic stats for each site just as uBlock Origin. I think if the developer continues to maintain and develop this tool further I will be with this one for a long time. One recommendation is once you install both Ghostery extensions restart Safari. I noticed it did not actually fully block until the Safari app was restarted.
Oh dear, what happened?
The old Ghostery plugin allowed fine-tuning which trackers were allowed, and which were not, in case they broke the page in some fundamental way. But with the new Ghostery plugin, it’s either everything or nothing, which means you have to choose between having a broken page or allowing third parties to track you on the site. I hope this can be fixed in the next release.
Finally An Ad Blocker That Just WORKS !!!
I've been looking for a new ad blocker for a while now that I upgraded to Mojave and Apple had their new rules. The old, reliable ones I use to use just weren't working. I found a couple that I paid for that I "thought" worked but it turned out they had their other issues. Then I stubbled across this ad blocker and behold — IT WORKS and doesn't negatively impact my system. GREAT WORK !!!
