GoodVibrations.css: an adblocker for your Surfin’ Safari

Product page moved HERE. This page has become a category.

Safari is my default browser (on both Mac OSX and Windows, I use Konqueror when in Linux). So, I wanted to harness Safari’s built-in capacity to use Custom Style Sheets as an ad-blocking solution. After looking around on the web, I found these 2 great CSS files:


As I surfed the web, I started to customize the file for sites that I visited. A few friends aasked if they could have copies of the file. They started submitting their changes to me. And, that’s why I decided to post it here.

GoodVibrations.css will work with Safari (for Mac OS X and Windows) as well as other browsers. Most of the CSS here will work on any browser. Any browser-specific code will be optimized for the WebKit/KHTML Rendering Engine. Safari, Konqueror, OmniWeb, and Shiira are just some of the browsers that use WebKit/KHTML to render pages.

This file will be updated monthly based upon submissions from users like you. So, if you make personal modifications that improve GoodVibrations.css, please head over to this page and submit them as comments below.

The current file (pre July 1, 2007) is listed as beta. By July 1st, I will include Windows install instructions. From that point on, the version numbers will be done as month-year (example: 7-2007).

  1. Hi Mike, I need an actual example of a page from the site that exhibits the problem to really be sure that I have it right. And no, I won’t make a version of it that re-enables any ads. But, if you want to see certain ads, feel free to open up the text file and remove all of the references to google. I’m sure you can understand why I cannot set the precedent of re-enabling ads upon request.
