Ka-Block! 3.2
A Safari browser extension that blocks an artisanal selection ofadvertisements and trackers for a faster web.
This extension's goals are modest.
* Block most ads and trackers.
* Never contact a server.
* Never slow down a page.
Some ads will get through this filter, and that's ok. We already haveextensions that block every ad that's ever appeared on the web with acompletionist zeal that must be admired. Provided we accept thetradeoffs described above, those blockers work great.
This ad filtering code makes zero network connections. The only way forthe list of blocked domains to be updated is to release a new version ofthe extension itself.
The filtering extension has no access to the pages or sites loaded bythe browser. No code from this extension even runs while browsing theweb. Ka-Block! provides the list of filtered domains to Safari and thebrowser does the rest, maintaining your privacy.

According to security researchers, WebAdvancedSearch is an adware program. Adware is something which created in order to provide third-party ads to the user without asking his permission. The WebAdvancedSearch adware takes control of web browsers and redirects them to unwanted web sites every time you browse the World Wide Web. Adware software can end up on your MAC in various ways. In most cases is when you install free applications and forget to uncheck the box for the bundled applications installation.

Does adware software steal your personal data? The WebAdvancedSearch adware has the ability to collect lots of user info about you (your ip address, what is a web-site you are viewing now, what you are looking for on the World Wide Web, which links you are clicking), which can later transfer to third parties.

The majority of adware spreads along with free programs or even paid applications which Internet users can easily download online. The setup files of such apps, most often, clearly show that they will install additional apps. The option is given to users to stop the installation of any third-party apps. So, in order to avoid the installation of any adware software: read all disclaimers and install screens very carefully, choose only Custom or Advanced installation method and uncheck all bundled apps in which you are unsure.
