Mac Safari users have had a few years of extensions development, and among the more popular are those that block plugin usage, block advertisements, and even block Flash.
And controls can be fun.
You get options to block advertisers, tracking services, and social media networks from monitoring your online activities.
Click on a shortened URL and a pop-up confirms the website you’ll be directed to. You can also block embeds, objects, videos, and graphic images or photos, as well as frames.
It’s geeky. It takes some effort to setup and use. It’s one of many Safari extensions, but it’s free.
