Ad Blocking: as simple as possible

This week I was searching for a simple way to add an ad blocker to Safari. What I’ve found is an excellent solution. It’s just a simple css file! You put it into your user home under ~/Library/Safari/ and afterwards in Safari you go to “Preferences… -> Advanced” and select the style sheet.
Safari Settings
Here you go! Ad free surfing!

You can get that css file from here: userContent.css

    how is this simpler than Safari Adblock ( ? it’s an open source safari add-on that has a one-click installer and automagically updates itself regularly with the standard ad blocking subscriptions that other blockers like the insanely popular Adblock Plus for the firefox family of browsers uses. for advanced users, you can customize it with your own filters and whilte-lists, too…

    GlimmerBlocker is also pretty nice. Among other things, it uses a proxy approach, so it blocks ads for ALL browsers, not just Safari, Firefox, etc.
