Say Hello to 1Blocker X ➝

Salavat Khanov:

Soon after releasing 1Blocker in 2015 and adding more features (Whitelist, Hide Elements, Make HTTPS, iCloud sync, etc.) and extending our rule sets, we found out that we are about to hit the limit of total number of rules allowed for a Safari content blocker extension. Apple set the limit at 50K rules, and we were already at 49K. […]

The only solution to that problem is to create multiple extensions within 1Blocker that independently manage blocking in Safari. However, that requires rewriting the app to handle all these new extensions.

This looks like it’s going to be a great upgrade from the current version of 1Blocker, which I’ve been using since Ben Brooks declared it as the best content blocker shortly after iOS 9’s release. I wish the team would have spent a little bit more time on the icon, but let’s be honest, it’s just going to get tucked away inside a folder anyway.

Roadblock, a Powerful Content Blocker for Mac ➝

From the application’s product page:

Roadblock has a comprehensive and optimized built-in block list for blocking and hiding different types of content. You can easily block ads, tracking, social media, and web resources.

Custom Rules provide a powerful yet simple way to create, manage, and share your own rules. You can create custom rules to block resource and website loads, hide webpage elements, strip cookies from web requests, and whitelist websites.

This is a great looking content blocker for the Mac. If I used OS X on a regular basis, this would be an insta-buy.

Discontent is an iOS ‘Content’ Blocker ➝

From the App Store description:

Discontent blocks web content. Not scripts, not ads, not trackers. Content. Stop distracting yourself with marginally informative blog posts and start living.

Pairs nicely with an ad blocker for a true barebones web experience.

This is hilarious.

Adamant, Content Blocking for iOS ➝

I was offered early access to Adamant before it went live in the App Store and I’ve been very happy with it. If you’re still looking for an alternative to Peace, I’d suggest giving Adamant a try.
