What is it about?
Disconnect is a great ad blocker because it works with other third-party browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc.) and not just Safari. It's able to block ads, trackers, and even malicious malware that would affect your device, and you can see all of the trackers that they block. In the end, this leads to faster page loads and better performance on your device as a whole.
Why we love it
Disconnect is free to try and it works great. You'll definitely see some improvement on your device once you use this blocker.
