MacKeeper ads pop up constantly. I can't get rid of them. I tried blocking cookies in security and privacy. No luck.
I use AdBlock, Ghostery, DoNotTrackMe, and Disconnect for that sort of thing. Don’t know if any are redundant; don’t care.
I use Get Off My Lawn for social networking blocking, but that’s a different story.
Oh, certainly. They’re just extensions. You can find them on Apple’s extension page.
If you don't mind poking under the hood of your system, you can edit your /etc/hosts file to block known advertising domains. I prefer this method to using browser-specific extensions since it works at the system level and does not depend on what browser I am using.
