Hush Content Blocker for Safari

Joel Arvidsson:

Block nags to accept cookies and privacy invasive tracking in Safari on Mac, iPhone and iPad.

Unlike some blockers, Hush has absolutely no access to your browser habits or passwords. Nor does it track behavior or collect crash reports - nothing leaves your device.

Via John Gruber:

It targets those insipid, never-ending, utterly pointless “cookie notices”, popovers begging you to join email newsletters, and other bits of tracking. It kills dickbars and dickbar-like annoyances. I’ve been running it for days and it’s the sort of thing you don’t notice at all until you disable it and all of a sudden you’re back to approving cookie access every single goddamn time you load an article at The Guardian and squinting to find the hidden “X” that closes a popover asking if you’ll sign up for something you don’t want and never asked for.

MacOS 11 only :(

Somerhing is afoul, or maybe it requires > iOS 14.1. The app just hangs on the splash screen and it won’t show up to enable in the content blocker settings. (Yeah yeah, I’ll update soon enough.)

It's taken me quite a while, but I've narrowed down this tool as the reason my in-page notifications are no longer showing on my work project. They have nothing to do with cookies (in fact, it's direct response to user input that happened over Ajax), so I think this tool is being a little over-zealous...
