GlimmerBlocker is implemented as an http proxy, so the stability of Safari isn't compromised because it doesn't use any hacks. It is even compatible with all other browsers and other native Mac OS X applications which uses http, e.g. NetNewsWire.
You'll always be able to upgrade Safari without breaking GlimmerBlocker (or waiting for a new release); and you'll be able to upgrade GlimmerBlocker without upgrading Safari. This makes it much easier to use the beta versions of Safari and especially the nightly builds of WebKit.

It works on removing the pass over, double underlined links that SafariBlock doesn't handle properly. thanks for ridding those frustrating links from my life!!!

Use short http timeout when testing if the java server is running or not, as the standard 60 sec timeout (times 3 tries) will hang the Sys Prefs Panel for a looong time. Reported by Tom Gregory.
