Since I have learned there is such an extension for Google Chrome , I do not spend time dealing with advertising.

I clicked on an affiliate link from Wirecutter. Safari said, "The URL was blocked by a content blocker." I added the domain name to the allowlist in Adblock Plus, but it continued to block the URL.

Thorin Klosowski writes on Wirecutter, "I’ve found that AdBlock, AdBlock Plus, and Ghostery all have steep learning curves or poor performance," [0].

ghost writes on GitHub, "AdBlock Plus for Safari - Supports acceptable ads, a pay-to-play ad allowing system which allows certain ads and trackers which meet guidelines and pay AdBlock Plus. Some of these ads, imo, are not acceptable, and I don't consider any trackers acceptable," [1].

ABP has been engaging in these antics for many years now. Avoid and use uBlock Origin.

    This is the extension they always have built-in for Browsers that can't get extensions. Makes me think there's some incentive. I've always preferred AdGuard.
