Sponsor: Magic Lasso Adblock

Published on 05 Oct 2020

My thanks to indie developer Matthew Bickham for sponsoring Swift by Sundell last week to promote his Magic Lasso ad blocker.

Now, I realize that advertising an ad blocker might seem a bit strange, but what I really like about Magic Lasso is that it cleans up the web by removing many of the user-hostile ads that are out there, while still keeping completely native ads (like the ones that you’ll find on Swift by Sundell) intact.

Magic Lasso will automatically block things like autoplaying video ads, unwanted popups, banners, privacy-invading trackers, and more — which in turn can make browsing the web using Safari up to two times faster.

So if you still want to support your favorite indie creators by seeing their native, privacy-focused ads, but also want to block the ones that track you across the web and that make many popular websites so much slower than they need to be — then try Magic Lasso Adblock. It’s free to download, and it’s available on both iOS and macOS.
