Thank you for helping us make the web better.
• Teaches you about trackers with encyclopedia-like entries.
• Spotlights the worst offenders… Did you know that the worst site we found on the web had 172 trackers? Better blocks them all and makes that site 4× lighter and 15.8× faster!
• Blocks blocker blockers (try saying that quickly a few times). Read our open letter to Wired in the app or on our web site to find out why blocking blockers put people at risk on the web.
• It’s open… anyone can help make Better even better.
What people are saying about Better:
— ‘Works really well and a delightful onboarding experience’
— ‘Fantastic blocker with a rational, ethical approach to privacy and monetization in this digital age.’
— ‘I snapped this up after reading the open letter to Wired (such a pet peeve) but I stayed for the awesome.’
— ‘Thanks for such an incredibly simple app to make the web just that bit better!’
— ‘It's good to see such nice people stand up to tracking and malvertising. This app does everything it promises to do and sets a new gold standard in content blockers. Spend a few bucks to take back the web from disrespectful business models. You won't regret it.’
What's New in Version 1.8
Thank you for all your feedback and great reviews. IMPORTANT: please launch the app after updating.
In this version:
• Minor cosmetic update
• Latest tracker blocking rules and content
Only Essential Apps
Not blocking element hiding, still getting some banners. I'm skeptical and not sure. Seem to offer the same thing as BlockBear which is free. I payed $5 and I don't really know if it's worth it. I do take the developers word on what they offer. Independent & non compromise.
