The most popular, most used browser on the Mac is, and not subject to much argumentation, Apple’s own Safari. And what’s not to like? It’s clean, fast, works well, but is missing a few things found in other browsers.
Extensions. Add-on utilities that bring extra functionality. Safari has extensions, but not nearly as many as found on Google’s Chrome browser or Mozilla’s Firefox browser. That situation is not likely to change soon, but in the meantime you can bask in these two Safari add-ons which make browsing easier.
Block, And Ye Shall Not Receive
How can you defeat that attack?
Enter Adblock Plus and Ghostery, two free Mac browser apps which use technology to give you controls over which advertisements will be used. All. None. Or, some; specifically, those you pick. Allow me to recommend Ghostery over ABP because the controls are simpler, and the popup display of ads and trackers gives you an idea of which websites should be whitelisted to allow ads on sites which are deserving but block ads on sites which should be blacklisted because they abuse readers.
Early last year Mac360 dropped the standard tracking advertisements, so what you see now are a few relevant ads about Apple or Mac products. What you won’t find are trackers. That means Mac360’s pages load into Safari as fast as any, you won’t be tracked during your visit. We hope you appreciate that approach and visit a sponsor or two while you’re here.
