PithHelmet Rule Editor - Sample Block Rule

Each rule can be turned on/off by the little checkbox in the rule list.

Dragging a rule or group of rules to the Finder will create small .phr file (PithHelmet Rules) that can be shared with friends. Dragging a .phr file from the Finder into the Rules Editor will insert the rule into your rule set.

The icon indicates the rule type ( site preferences rule vs. filter rule).

The tabs expose different groups of settings. For filter rules (blocking content), only the first tab ("Filter") is relevant. The rest are disabled.
