What's New in Version 1.1
Various bug fixes and improvements
Seems to work fine
I have been using the Disconnect extension for the Opera browser on my mac for several years, and it works well. Just installed the free iOS Disconnect app on my iPhone. Tested it on one of my most visited websites it worked perfectly to block the ads which were annoying me. The macOS version works to block tracking sites. I have no information about whether the iPhone app does the same thing. May have to go premium for that.
Blocks legit sites
Blocks legit sites, such as email subscription managers.
Needs an on/off switch, so I can temporarily turn it off. As best I can tell the only way to turn it off is to delete it. (Well... or I suppose dig down into Safari prefs. Should be easier than that.)
Is it working?
I can't tell if it's working. I can't find any settings for it either. I really like the desktop Firefox version.
