Great, But Missing Whitelisting
It'd be great to be able to whitelists some web sites like GitHub comments; however, I've been able to just disable content blockers within Safari.
I truly cannot tell if it is enabled!?!
I really have no clue if it is enabled and working or if the builtin Safari security settings on Big Sur are preventing it from working. There is not a toolbar icon in the Safari window; however, I have an icon for every single other extension. Even the extensions that have no use for a toolbar icon have them, so I am kinda hesitant to think this app is the exception. The Safari preferences show that this app does not have permission to read or transmit data even though itis enabled and checked. Again, all my other extensions are allowed permission to do so. I really don't know. I can't even right-click for options within a webpage. I wish I had some evidence that indicates it is working!
Developer Response ,
First of all thank you for using Quiet :)
Quiet is a content blocker, it’s a special kind of extension and really doesn’t need an toolbar item.
In the next version there will be a toolbar item to report websites to Quiet.
When you open Quiet from the applications directory you can make changes. To check if it works you can block Facebook for example. When blocked it should not open Facebook.com in the browser. Instead show a message couldn’t open this website because of content blocker.
Thanks for your feedback! :-)
A Must-have for the Privacy Conscious
It’s sad that the internet has gotten to the point where an app like Quiet is needed - but here we are...
I appreciate that Quiet strikes the balance of blocking prying eyes but allowing ads. As annoying as ads are they are the necessary evil to keep your favorite websites afloat.
I have this app installed on all my devices and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of sanity back when using the web, especially social media skeptics like myself.
Also, the devs are highly responsive to feedback and suggestions. They’re good people.
Requests: the ability to block TikTok and Baidu would be greatly appreciated.
