Ratings and Reviews
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!
Just Installed — Works Great!
I’ve been very annoyed lately with the growing presence of distracting ads on some of my favorite news sites, like the Washington Post and SFGate. So I just installed AdGuard. I chose to not launch AdGuard at login, but to show the icon in the menu bar. This way, I can turn on AdGuard when I’m on a site where I want it active, such as the Washington Post, and turn it off the rest of the time. It works great! When I turn it on, all the ads disappear. Couldn’t ask for more.
Loved This Until The Last Update
This adblocker works really great but they've added an "advanced" mode that basically sends all of your information to a remote server for "better ad blocking". I'm sure the claim will be that it's all done anonymously; but often there are often personal identifiers in URLs, and in page content, not to mention each installation of this application creates unique identifiers that the application has complete control over and is free to send to the remote adblock analysis server. "Trust us! We're on your side!" they'll say. Sure.
They allow you to not turn this option on, but every time I start up Safari it now opens the AdGuard control panel with an annoying message that I haven't activated their spyware mode yet.
Basically, they've found a way to work around the protections Apple put in place and it's disappointing on all fronts.
