Apple is trying to give you a hint: InputManager "plugins" are bad Mojo.

10.6: How to use Input Manager add-ons in Snow Leopard
Authored by: corienti on Sep 03, '09 02:13:43PM

Well then here is a hint in return for Apple: we need some form of plugin ability in Safari. Badly. We run crash-prone InputManager add-ons instead because we are so in need of plugins.

I myself can and will not use a web browser without adblocking. End of story. If I can't have Pithhelmet any more, I will have no option but to switch to Firefox, despite how vastly, vastly inferior it is to Safari. Most people I know have the same stance.

NB - if it goes another step further and there is no adblocking in web browsers, I will install a adblocking web proxy server on my Linux router.
Alternately, I might do that instead of switching to Firefox (that's how much better Safari is). Either way, the ads must be blocked.

There is already an "Ad Blocker" package for OSX that works as a proxy.

The thing is, because Ads are just part of the web page content, I don't see any reason this couldn't be handled as a proper webplugin. It's when the thing needs to do something outside the bounds of a page that webplugins don't work..

Try GlimmerBlocker. It works with ALL browsers, under OS 10.5 and 10.6.
