I am looking for the best (paid) ad blocker / cookies rejecting software for Safari, running on iMac (Big Sur).
I have checked the App Store and found the followings apps:
AdBlock Pro for Safari
1Blocker for Safari
AdGuard for Safari
And there is also “Minimal Consent”, which is sparsely reviewed and somewhat poorly rated.
My objective is to find an app which automatically accepts the bare minimum of cookies (essential) for the website to function properly and also an app/software which kills off annoying ads popping up and disrupting user experience.
Has anyone had any experience with these apps listed above or any other which you can recommend for my purposes? I want a tried and tested software, which fulfils the objectives and does not create more problems/exposure to tracking etc.
‘Minimal Consent’ seems to do what I want as far as cookies are concerned, but some reviewers have mentioned that it simply accepts ‘all’ cookies which is not ideal, as I want it to accept on the the ‘necessary/essential’ cookies. There are also some complaints that this app gains access to passwords and credit cards (which obviously I do not want).
Thank you for your guidance!
