Better is the Best Blocker

This is my favorite blocker. They block all the trackers and the offensive ads, while leaving some of the good ones. I'm not interested in depriving legitimate websites of revenue, I'm interested in not being tracked and not having my online experience ruined by intrusive ads.

When there is a site that doesn't work, or the site has taken countermeasures, I've found that their support responds quickly and they make sure they get it fixed.

Now, when sites nag about turning off a blocker, I don't feel bad. They can turn off tracking and they won't be blocked. We can help them earn a living, but we don't need to pay with our privacy.

Simple app that does big things.

Privacy matters. If you are searching for a funeral home after a loss in your you then want advertisers to serve up Ads of funeral homes for weeks afterwards? That would be a painful thing to experience. That’s a harsh, but true example of what Better helps prevent. What you share with websites should be decided by you, and not tracked at all times. The Better app and the team involved are valiantly fighting to protect the privacy of everyone. Better does its job well.

Best content blocker for privacy and speed

Of all the content blockers out there claiming to increase browsing speed by 4x or so, this is the only one I’ve found that delivers. It is also a rarity to run into a site that is broken while using this, which is something I cannot say about blockers that try to do more than just protect my privacy.

Love it!
