Better was a privacy tool for Safari on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. It protected you from behavioural ads and companies that track and profile you on the web.

Better was loved by over 40,000 people on iOS and 15,000 people on Mac. It passed away following a tragic bout of fruit poisoning.

Better is survived by two screeching voices of the minority, Laura Kalbag and Aral Balkan, working to create a better web in its memory.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you become a patron or make a one-time donation to fund our ongoing work at Small Technology Foundation.

Thank you for helping us make the web better.

If you’re looking for an alternative, we recommend 1Blocker by Salavat and Alex.

Salavat has kindly offered 3-months free to anyone switching from Better to 1Blocker and he will be donating 30% of all revenue from those accounts to Small Technology Foundation on a monthly basis to help fund our work.

To take advantage of this offer, please contact Alex via email at or on Twitter at @1BlockerApp.
