    Adblock for Safari combined with Ghostery does wonders.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    This is the key question - every browser has a different extension/plugin.

    Adblock for Safari kind of stinks. It isn't as robust as Adblock Plus on Chrome. I prefer Safari so I stick to it for most things and pop Chrome open on a few sites where Adblock for Safari can't get stuff. It isn't real good with video ads for instance.

    Ghostery looks interesting though. I might have to install that.
