Minim is a not just a script blocker, but so much more!
Save your bandwidth, streamline your internet and disable downloading of unnecessary data. Easily configure global block rules, and create exceptions for blocking of images, video, scripts, popups, fonts, svg, style sheets and more.
Why use Minim?
Many websites utilize third party tracking scripts, these can be easily blocked with Minim - just disable third party scripts and you have instantly taken back some of your privacy. The next biggest issue is page bloat. Many sites on the internet will download data an order of magnitude larger than the content you are actually viewing.

I was looking for an extension that would allow me to block annoying videos that would automatically play in the background on news sites but I didn’t want to go through the hassle of having to whitelist all the websites where I don’t want videos and images to be blocked. What makes this extension great is that you can choose to use the blacklist feature instead of the whitelist feature by unchecking “Block all sites except those on whitelist” in the preferences of the app. It’s exactly what I’ve needed. I’m running High Sierra so I can’t confirm if this works well on Mojave or Catalina but other than that, this has been useful.
Does what it claims to do
Still on Nojave as of 2020 January, and this extension works as expected. Thanks!
Good but not that easy to use and it feels unfinished.
I love the approach of this app and have not found any others like it. I like having complete control over what content will be downloaded for any website I visit. But you would think that their Safari extension, which puts a toolbar button in Safari, would let you quickly and easily make temporary exceptions for websites that you visit and decide you want to, for example, see the pictures or a video on the website, or otherwise temporarily adjust the block permissions. It doesn't. It only opens the app, or something that looks exactly the same, and then you need to enter the domain or website address. That means that you had better remember to go back and remove the website exception when you're finished, unless you want to trust the website forever, for all of the content types you have set up. There's no need for a Safari extension that adds no functionality. The Extension should function to add temporary exceptions to the global blocking rules, and they should be specific to the content that the user wants to download and view. If I want to temporarily allow only pictures or only scripts, etc., on a website, I should be able to using the extension. For now, if you're looking for that type of functionality, use a standard content blocker Safari extension, not this one. The other really annoying thing about this app: This app is understandably always running in order to work properly - but those apps don't belong in my Dock, they belong in the Menu Bar. Annoying. I hope the developer adds these functionalities; if they did, this would blow away all other content blockers out there.
Developer Response ,
You can use the contextual menu in Safari to add exceptions. Also, the main app doesn’t need to be running for Minim to work.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
