He said: “The vast majority of online content creators fund their work with advertising.
“That means they want the ads that run on their sites to be compelling, useful and engaging – ones that people actually want to see and interact with.
“But the reality is, it’s far too common that people encounter annoying, intrusive ads on the web – like the kind that blare music unexpectedly, or force you to wait 10 seconds before you can see the content on the page.
“These frustrating experiences can lead some people to block all ads – taking a big toll on the content creators, journalists, web developers and videographers who depend on ads to fund their content creation.”
The speedy Safari browser will come with the new macOS High Sierra operating system, and it will be released this autumn.
This upgraded browser will include a number of improvements such as autoplay video blocking but it’s the speed many may find most exciting.
