<li><strong>Add the domain to Exceptions</strong> by going to the Exceptions tab, and adding the domain’s URL to your Exceptions list. This will affect every time you load this domain in Safari.</li>

<h3 id='app-or-extension'>Should I download the Better app or use the extension from the Safari Extensions gallery?</h3>
<p>Both the app on the Mac App Store and the extension from the Safari Extensions gallery have the same blocking rules that protect you from tracking on the web. However the Mac app (and the iOS app) also have an <a href='#how-does-exceptions-work'>Exceptions list</a> so you can choose not to use Better on certain sites, and report sites that aren’t working well with Better enabled.</p>
<h3 id='two-extensions'>I have two Better Safari Extensions, which should I use?</h3>
<p>You might end up with two Better Safari Extensions if you downloaded the Better extension from the Extensions Gallery, and you also bought Better for Mac. You can safely uninstall the extension you downloaded from the Extensions Gallery:</p>
<ol>
<li>Go to Safari &gt; Preferences &gt; Extensions</li>
<li>Select the Better extension that is called “Better 1.0 by Ind.ie” (see screenshot below)</li>
<li>Select the “Uninstall” button to safely uninstall the extension</li>
<li>Ensure the checkbox alongside the other Better extension is checked to enable Better</li>
</ol>
<h3 id='extension-permissions'>Why does the Better extension say it does not have permission to read or transmit content?</h3>
<p>Better doesn’t need to read or transmit content from your webpages. It doesn’t need to see any of your traffic, and that is by design. Better just passes Better’s block list on to Safari so Safari knows what to block for you. We can’t see any of your traffic, and we don’t want to!</p>
