August Release

It’s now official, Good Vibrations now includes Flash Blocking! It’s not perfect (nothing ever is), but as Safari heads toward v3-non-beta, this will only get better. A big thank you to everyone who has helped so far. All of the advice and bug reports have really helped. Keep it coming.

 

The big question now is, does Good Vibrations stay a personal project, or does it become a community-driven opensource event? If you are interested in becoming more involved in the development of GV, drop me a line. Ideally, I would like to move maintenance of the project over to a place like sourceforge and take input from the entire community instead of managing the whole thing from my Documents folder 🙂

  1. The Yahoo logo disappears when doing a search, but other than that, block pretty much everything, great job

  2. I’ve noticed a bit of weirdness in the August GV I can’t figure out (I’m no CSS jockey). It seems to block hyperlinks where the destination contains “heads.”. For example, Google for “cocoaheads”, whose website is at //www.cocoaheads.org. If GV is set as Safari’s CSS, the hyperlinks are hidden. BTW, thanks for GV!

  6. This is a great initiative. I wonder if anyone out there with better CSS chops than mine can try and tackle the main French newspaper sites (liberation.fr lemonde.fr lefigaro.fr nouvelobs.fr ). They all have really obnoxious Flash ads and I haven’t been able to block them. Thanks, -v
