    It works great on my mac running Yosemite. It's a lot faster than AdBlock, pages load quicker. Also love the phishing capabilities.

    I have only one complain :( it doesn't block youtube's commercial adds or the little banner ad on videos. Can anybody help with this?

    In Safari we use special code to block Youtube video ads (due to some Safari restrictions it's impossible to use our filters).

    Looks like Youtube has changed the way they show ads so our anti-youtube ads code stopped working.

    I think we can fix it, update will be available soon.

    Thank you:)

    Maybe you would like to become one of Mac-version beta-testers?
    You'll get the software and beta tester's license, we'll get more bug reports:)

    Yep. We've managed to fix this issue without extension update.
    Just check filter updates. There is a special youtube rule in English filter. It is used in Safari version only and it blocks youtube ads.
    Next time if Youtube change something on their side we'll fix it on the server side without changing extension code.
