    Not only was Adblock fast (not fast enough for me, mind you) to come to market, it does NOT load the ads then hide them, even though it is a port of the Chrome extension that does that. This extension blocks the ads before they are downloaded... speeding up web browsing immensely and quieting web pages.


    "Q: Does AdBlock for Safari actually prevent stuff from being downloaded, or just hide it after the fact?

    A: The former. Chrome doesn't support preventing resources from being downloaded, but Safari does, and I added code to support that. This also means that SCRIPT tags will be blocked in Safari by the EasyList rules, whereas in Chrome we've had to constantly bandaid this with custom rules to block the elements the scripts put onto the page."


    All I need now is RSS live links, a la Firefox, and I might actually consider switching to Safari for the first time ever.
