ad manager, browser - does it matter? -- Suggestions please n thanks

Quickly, the setup & situation: MBPr, 15" and Mavericks. Some questions.

What browser is best to manage ads easily yet retain functionality?

A pop up is nowhere near as bad as those horrible auto-play video and/or audio ads. Grrr

Suggestions for quality software, either paid or free, are welcome.

A real shame that the DSLR Members' Choice died. That was a great resource!

Adblock

I second vukodlak75's suggestions. I use all 3 Safari extensions on all of my Macs.

Same here, I also run Ghostry. It helps mitigate the advertisers' tracking. As a final barrier to ads, I run LittleSnitch which apart from it's other firewall niceties, allows you to block those few ad and tracking servers which the other tools miss.

I third vudokodlak75's suggestions, plus Ghostery. Sometimes Adblock works too well. You should fiddle with its preferences in that case. I also suggest Safari Cookies.
