[E] lets you skip the ads
– CUSTOMIZATION –
All keyboard shortcuts are configurable. Click the Dynamo icon in your Safari toolbar and then choose the settings icon to edit the hotkeys.
– DATA PROTECTION –
Safari shows you a notice that says the extension can read personal information and browsing history. It's a general caution for every extension that changes the behavior of websites' elements. Dynamo does not read nor collect any personal data. We've deliberately designed this app so that we can't even encounter any. All Dynamo's processes run solely on your machine.
– UPDATES –
You might need to quit Safari in order to update Dynamo via Mac App Store. Closing the browser is not sufficient, quit Safari with command + Q or go to menu bar and choose Safari > Quit Safari.

Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic, could be perfect with minor tweaks
I prefer ads to be automatically blocked entirely, as I assume everybody would. Needing to skip them by pressing 'E' is mildly annoying when compared to using Firefox uBlock Origin.
Being able to speed up videos past 2x is fantastic. You can hold down the 'F' key rather than pressing it over and over again to quickly reach any speed you want. I agree with another reviewer that it would be better if it didn't cause the video to stutter, but that's not such a big deal.
The most annoying thing for me is that the speed you have set is not retained for the next video - you always have to manually set the speed you want.
Overall a really great Safari browser extension.
It's good, but annoying. PLEASE Solve it!
I've used many video speed controllers for years, both on Mac and Windows. Video Speed Controller on chrome is a great example.
This extension works, but has one MAJOR ANNOYANCE. It pauses the video with every change of speed. Why?? It helps with nothing, rather just breaks the flow, and wastes time. Also, the "display of speed" takes up so much space on videos. I wish there was an option to make it smaller or just put it in the corner where it isn't so intrusive. But I can still live with that, but the pausing effect drives me nuts, because I use it a lot.
Could Be Better, and Easily!
I love this app, most sincerely worth every penny. The problem is not with the app, but with the developer. At bout every 10th skip (E) it requires you to rate the app. You can choose to ignore, but it wont skip. What's the point? Apple is not going to register the same user ID giving your app 5 stars over and over again. I gave you five stars and an excellent review, so why persist? Either develop another app and label it pro, or raise your pricing. It's more anoying that you just created another step in clicking skip. Now I click E your rating pop-up appears and wether I rate or close by that time frame the skip button has illuminated.
