This latest extension is available for Safari version 5.1, 6.0, 6.1, and 7.0 (with some bugs). Yet, the extension still consists of the following issues:

  • Popups are not blocked.
  • The number of ads that are blocked for the page being used currently will sometimes not reset when opening a new page (only for Safari 7.0).
  • Icon popup contents will not get updated sometimes when loading a page into a new tab (only for Safari 7.0).

The company has included a new abstraction layer to the code of Opera and Chrome versions so that the Safari incarnation could utilize the same codebase. As a result of this, the features and improvements that are rolled out in the future could be made available for all the 3 browsers.

The company reports that the Safari’s extension API is more finite than that of other browsers; the requests that are issued by third-party plugins such as Flash and the XHR requests aren’t blocked.

Safari users can download the latest Adblock Plus extension directly from the link provided below.
