Detailed installation instructions

Download the release from GlimmerBlocker-1.6.6.dmg (release notes).

Click the magnifying glass in Safari's "Downloads" window to show the downloaded file in the Finder:

Safari might have decompressed the file, fully or partially. If the filename ends with ".tar" or ".gz" then double-click the file until you get a preference panel like this icon:

Double-click this file. The "System Preferences" will open, and ask you how you want to install the Preference Panel:

The default selection "Install for this user only" is fine for most users. If you have created several accounts (with administration privileges) on your mac, choose "for all users".

GlimmerBlocker will now open. The only step left is to click the "Use GlimmerBlocker" checkbox:

You will be asked for your password to update the network settings so Safari uses GlimmerBlocker.

That's all.
