How to Block Ads in Safari
One of the biggest problems I had with Apple's Safari web browser is that I couldn't block ads. After being a long time Firefox user, I became spoiled from browsing an internet free of advertising. Now there's a way to tell Safari to never show you an advertisement! In this article, I'll guide you through the process. Don't worry, it's relatively painless.
Things You'll Need
Download userContent.css from http://www.floppymoose.com/userContent.css or below in the resources section. This is a text file that gives Safari rules about how to render a webpage - in this case, what not to show.
Save userContent.css to home:Library:Safari or if you've already downloaded the file, move it there.
Open Safari. Go to the Preferences and hit the Advanced tab. Use the stylesheet dropdown to chose userContent.css. That's it! The internet is now ad-free!
Tips & Warnings
