Product Details and Description of



this app is a Safari extension that stops web sites from making your browser harder to use. And it protects your privacy on the web. this app is not an ad blocker: it offers unique features not available from ad blockers or any other apps. this app is one of a kind! Made by indie developer Jeff Johnson. The support link has documentation and my email address. Many web sites deliberately disable user interface features in Safari that you normally expect to work. this app re-enables those features for you in Safari: • opening contextual menus • selecting, copying, cutting, and pasting of text • drag and drop • AutoFill/autocomplete of passwords, emails, etc. this app also protects your privacy on the web: • Stops Google AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages)! Automatically loads the original "canonical" web site page instead of Google AMP. • Removes tracking tags such as utm_source, gclid, and fbclid from the end of URLs. • Stops clickjacking in Google Search, Gmail, Facebook, and DuckDuckGo. • Stops hyperlink auditing (anchor "ping"). • Stops tracking beacons (Navigator.sendBeacon). • Stops sites from using the Page Visibility API to know when a tab is visible on your screen. • Stops URL shorteners. Checks the links you click in Safari for well-known link shorteners — bit.ly, tinyurl.com, l.facebook.com, t.co, etc. — and loads the unshortened destination URL instead of the shortened URL. This occurs without setting any cookies or other site data, so you can't be tracked by your click. Bonus Features: • Stop videos from autoplaying. This works even on sites where Safari doesn't stop autoplay, such as YouTube. And YouTube video ads are automatically skipped! Also stops videos from following you down the page when you scroll on many sites. • Stop sites in Safari from pausing your audio in a background app such as Apple Music. • Show native video controls. Use Picture-in-Picture from Safari on sites that don't normally support it, including YouTube! • Automatically select the highest video quality on YouTube! • Hides the annoying popup banners prompting you to get the app on Google, Google Maps, DuckDuckGo, IMDb, Instagram, Quora, Reddit, and Tumblr! • Add your own site-specific CSS and JavaScript to web pages! • Custom URL redirects! Redirect new Reddit to old Reddit, Twitter to Nitter, YouTube to Invidious, etc. You can create any redirect that you want! • Stop keyboard page zoom. Stops the page from zooming in when you show the software keyboard! • Enable pinch-to-zoom on sites that prevent it, such as old reddit. • Stops "Are you sure you want to leave this page?" alerts. Close your tabs without getting stopped by the site! • Force external links to open in the current tab instead of a new tab. Remove target="_blank" from links so that they no longer automatically create a new tab. • Force external links to open in a new tab instead of the current tab. This is great if you're scrolling through a list of links and want to open each one in a new tab. • Force images to the front. Bypass the transparent overlay on sites such as Instagram that prevents you from dragging and opening the contextual menu on images. • Warns when you paste or type beyond the maximum length in a password field or other text field. Stops you from accidentally losing characters!

Total gem!

The macOS version of this app may be my favorite piece of software so I’m thrilled to have it on iOS too. Possibly the best deal in the AppStore. (Glowing review notwithstanding, I am not in any way affiliated with developer—aside from being a huge fan.) Seriously: a great deal for a great app.

Amazing Developer Response

I emailed the dev with a request to add a feature to override the zoom settings of a website and within a week he had implemented it in the extension and it works perfectly. 5 stars easy!
