Ghostery is suitable for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer and Opera.

We continously adapt Ghostery to work seamlessly with the latest versions of your browser. At present, Ghostery 7 doesn't operate within Safari as Safari does not use the webkit API for its extensions. We are currently working on porting Ghostery 7 to that browser. In the meantime, you can still use Ghostery 5.4 on Safari.
