It is crazy how many advertisements there are on a web page. Which ad blocker do you recommend?

Personally I would recommend getting a raspberry pi and installing Pi Hole on it. If you have some other machine that is on 24/7 you could also install it there. Then you set your router to use that machine as the DNS and it will block pretty much whatever you want.

Apologies, I know you're probably looking for a plugin but I don't use Safari. If you can get uBlock Origin for Safari I would go that route too.

Another recommendation for uBlock Origin if you run a compatible version.

If it's a recently-upgraded version of Safari you're basically stuck with whatever plug-ins are on the Mac App Store. There are more adding each day but Apple changed the game a bit with one of the recent updates to the browser.

Maybe something like this would work?

I have been using—and recommending—1Blocker for several years:

[1blocker.com]

It's an excellent content blocker but unfortunately, the developers seem to be going to a subscription model…

An alternative that is currently free is Adguard for Safari:

As mentioned, it depends on your version of OS (vs iOS) and Safari.

With Mavs and Sierra, I use AdBlockPlus and uBlock, both free from the App Store.

When I upgraded another Mac to High Sierra, and then upgraded Safari, I lost the ability to use either of those.

I check the Mac App Store once a week, hoping they'll be upgraded (and still free!) but no joy, last I looked.

There was something about AdGuard that I didn't like, and had a tough time getting rid of it in High Sierra's Safari.

I accidentally installed in in Sierra's Safari, but it was easy, surprisingly, to remove.

Unfortunately, this means I have to keep FireFox handy on High Sierra, until an acceptable blocker is available.

This page by the developer of uBlock Origin for Safari notes that there are two blockers called "Adguard," one that he recommends called "Adguard for Safari" and a second choice called "Adguard for Mac". They are both made by the same company, i.e. Adguard Software Limited:

Very confusing…
