Description

More than 21,000,000 AdGuard users enjoy the better, faster, and safer Internet. The ad blocker extension clears all ads in Safari and fights data tracking to protect privacy.

Unlike other major ad blockers, AdGuard provides some extra features you are used to having with the traditional (now deprecated) extensions:

● Manage protection from Safari
● Choose among popular filter lists
● Add custom filter lists
● Create your own filtering rules

● Whitelist websites in one click

AdGuard for Safari is based on the Safari native content blocking API, which makes it lightning fast.

BEST Ad Blocker for Mojave

After upgrading to Mojave, I found Safari has completely changed its mechanism of extensions. All of my ad block plug-ins now only function in very limited manners (no filter setting, no element inspections etc.).
And I feel particularly annoyed -- I browse Chinese websites frequently, yet almost all ad blockers would never succeed in removing ads in foreign languages unless you set up filters manually. Yet as I said before, all most all ad blockers under Mojave are too succinct to offer such advanced features.
Thankfully, I finally found this lovely, amazing, elegant, useful, powerful AdGuard. The pre-installed language-specific filer lists are totally incredible.
To Mojave users, if you're reading this review, pls stop searching for other ad blockers. AdGuard is THE BEST!

Some annoying bugs, please fix!

This app appears to do a great job and what it sets out to do, but there is an annoying bug that renders this quite frustrating on a fresh boot: when this app is set to open at login, it does NOT honor the "hide" setting checkbox under System Preferences --> Users and Groups --> Current User --> Login Items --> "hide" checkbox next to AdGuard for Safari. Normally, when the system is rebooted and this box is checked, the app can launch, but without the application window opening in front of the user. Please fix this, so that the app can launch at login without popping up its preferences window each time! Finally, as a feature request, please support Catalina auto dark mode, and please allow for iCloud-based settings syncing... thanks!

If it ain't broke, then fix it 'til it is -- avoid this mess

Use to work great until the last month or two ... Preferences started popping routinely with little guidance as to what the problem is. Message suggests that Safari can only use 50,000 rules ... fine. But the core filters can not be reduced to less than 50,000 rules without breaking functionality. Huh? When did this become a problem I had to deal with? The program provides no REAL guidance. In my opinion it's simply broke. On Jul 19, 2019 I installed the latest version released about 1 week ago which has resulted in constant crashing from this program. I'm not sure what is going on at the software developer, but from my perspective the program no longer works, has continued to get worse (dramatically) and is avoided. I plan on uninstalling this mess.
