Unlike Safari’s ITP, however, Chrome’s adblocker has been created in partnership with the ad industry. The feature only blocks what the company calls “intrusive ads”, such as autoplaying video and audio, popovers which block content, or interstitial ads that take up the entire screen.
No tracking, no revenue: Apple’s privacy feature costs ad companies millions
The whole article is interesting. Especially the anger from the ad companies about Apple blocking tracking.
I’ve stuck with Safari as my main browser over the years. First because it was quick, then AppleScript. I got used to the developer tools, as a non-dev they seem the simplest. Next the integration with mobile Safari. Now it looks like there is another reason.
And if I do want to use a different browser I can open pages from Safari in another browser from the develop menu.
@johnjohnston Out of curiosity, what kind of apple-scripting do you do with Safari?
@eaganj Nothing fancy, mostly for blogging: grabbing links for pages, list of links for all tabs, quoting selection with links. My favourite & silliest makes gifs from google autocompletes.
@johnjohnston nice, I hadn’t thought of making autocomplete gifs that way!
