Unfortunately I can't use AdBlock Plus for Safari, so what' do you use to block ads assuming you're using Safari?

I think you mean "AdBlock", not "AdBlock Plus". –  deleteme Jan 22 at 3:28

If you use (or are willing to) Safari 5, SafariAdblock (a port of the Chrome extension, not the plugin that was used with Safari 4) works quite well.

You didn't mention whether or not you're running under Windows or Mac. I'll assume Mac, and if that's the case, have a look at Safari Adblocker, which seems to work pretty well.

Too bad that's for Mac users only :). Wish we also had something like that on Windows. –  Isxek May 18 '10 at 19:37

According to this, you will need to use a custom CSS file (like Fanboy's Element Hider CSS for Opera) to block out the ads from websites. However, it hides the ads more than it actually blocks them.

Rather than something specifically for Safari, try an ad-blocking hosts file for Windows.

You could try K9 Web Protection, which is a children's filtering software that I highly recommend...However, you could turn OFF all the features except for the web advertisement blocking, and that would do the job...Works on Windows and Mac, see download page.

AdBlock Plus now has a Safari version. (currently in beta)
