The following approach comes pretty close, but it does not (nor can it) cover images that are set as background. It might also slow down page loading a bit.

I'll use the add-on Stylish for that (theoretically you could do it without any external add-ons, but you need a free Safari developer ID to do so - see ...

Try SafariKeywordSearch. It allows you to set up custom searches triggered by keywords preceding searches. For example, I have it set so that goto Ask Different uses Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" to send me to the first Google result for "Ask Different".

But it might not work if there are cells that contain br elements or rows that start ...

The closest extension that can save the open tabs into a list is Sessions. You can also restore all the tabs all at once, or by double-clicking them to restore individual tabs. Generally, after you save the tabs into list, you can close the rest of the tabs with Option+Command+W. Closing these tabs will free the memory that the tabs has taken. Meanwhile, ...

bmike's comment prodded me into actually, y'know, reading the manual, which led me to find that the whitelists are in fact substring matches. Therefore these settings work: I had to find the /v/ URL by looking at the source of a page with a YouTube embedding.

This is spam, introduced by an extension, through superfish.com. AdBlock is not the cause! AdBlock blocks the injected ad, so the extension inserts the text equivalent.
