I'd like to whitelist a page I'm on with a single click

I've been using your product for a long time on my Mac and love it! With the recent iOS 9 release, there's been a lot of discussion about good versus bad ads, and I decided that I really need to start whitelisting sites I actually like, to give them some reward for good content and reasonable ads.

I may be misunderstanding how it's currently done in Mac Safari, but it appears I have to copy the URL, go to your preferences web page, click on the add-to-whitelist link, and paste in the URL, then click OK. Complicated. I have another application, Papers, which provided a javascript that I could create a bookmark and simply clicking it adds the current page to Papers. Could you do something similar?

I do fear that widespread ad blocking might tip the scales to "articles" that are infomercials or other things that really can't be blocked. So rewarding honest players, it seems to me, should be easy to do.

    My bad. You do have a button in Safari. It doesn't look like the Chrome button and I'd moved it a long time ago to the other side of the bar so I didn't see it.

    Problem solved. Please delete this thread. You guys are way ahead of me!
