Pro Ad-remover is already built in the engine
You do not necessarily need an extra plugin.
While Safari er is currently available gratis (without monetary charge) on Mac OS X, it is currently not libre (meaning that it does not allow users to view the source code used to create, to modify that code, or to redistribute modifications) and is therefore neither free nor open-source software.
Con OSX only
Apple dropped Windows support after Safari 5.
Con Poor support for new web technologies
Safari usually takes its time when it comes to adopting new and useful web technologies meaning that the user gets an inferior experience compared to other modern browsers.
Con Terrible support for open source formats like .VP9 or .ogg
Apple does not support open source formats. Instead, they use H.264 and H.265.
Con Outdated Rendering engine
All other browsers and toolkits (Qt/GTK) have shifted to Googles Blink-fork of KHTML/Webkit so Apple is currently the only main contributor left.
Con Limited add on support
They've got everything you will personally need built in, but a lack of addons could be an issue for some people.
