New blocking rules! Last Friday Laura blocked one blocker blocker, and blocked nine new trackers.

The rules will auto-update if the app is running. If it’s not, you can get the new rules by choosing ‘Update rules’ or ‘Check again now’ from Better’s menu.

@better @laura @better hi there. Like it very much at Mac. Good work! But is there a version for Firefox (Linux) in sight?

@eljay @laura Thanks! We don’t have the resources to make versions for other platforms right now, but if you use uBlock origin for FF Linux, you are welcome to use our blocking rule list for free (we’ve formatted a version especially): better.fyi/blockerList.txt

@better @laura

wow thanks. that's really great. did not know ublockorgin before...

unfortunately we have to buy better.ly again (bought it two month ago ...) but that's ok, because I am really happy with the better. An I like your idea of ethical design so I am willing to support that work

greetings from Germany to Ireland

@eljay @laura If you need to, when the new apps come out, please ask Apple for a refund for the old apps. support.apple.com/en-us/HT2040

(And thank you for your support!)—Laura

@better @laura@mastodon.laurakalbag.c

don't care. i see it as a contribute for good work

@Laura Kalbag @Better If one is to get a refund from apple, will that be charget to you, or will apple have to cover that by themselves? (Assuming it's the first option, but thought I'd ask.)

@harald @laurakalbag yes, I believe it’ll be deducted from the amount Apple pays us.

@Better Ok, thanks for clearing that up. Will just buy it again instead then. You do great work, so definitely worth the money.
