Ad blocking coming to safari in iOS nine

Apple engineer Ricky Mondello revealed this in a Twitter tweet, stating that there’ll be more details in a developer session tomorrow.

Developers will be able to block advertising cookies and other web generated content in their extensions.  He also stated that the method used will be faster than JavaScript based methods, is pervasive and will work in Web View,

What this means for users is that you’ll find ad and other content blocking applications in the App Store.

Stay tuned for more.
