I’m going to give this a go for a while and see what happens – worse case scenario is that I keep Chrome for when I need an ad blocker but use Safari for everything but I guess I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. One thing to consider is this, the Content Blocker API still has a limitation of 50K, the average easy list of ad blockers is sitting at 85K, and that doesn’t take into account the 26K malware domains and more. When people think that 50K is enough – they clearly haven’t looked at how big the filters are because 50K certainly isn’t enough.
Side note, it is interesting to see ANZ in New Zealand has moved from their inhouse payment software ‘goMoney Wallet’ so that makes for interesting conversation as to whether other banks fall in line – Westpac has its own payment software but how long will they hold out for? ASB has had its own for quite some time – how long will they hold out for? at some point I think they’re eventually going to fold as the pressure from customers will force a change because if the reviews on the Play Store and App Store are anything to go by, eventually them holding out for a ‘better deal’ from Apple and Google is ultimately going to hurt them in the long run.
