  • (2015-05-12) I'm happy it's open source and can be improved, but it doesn't work very well in blocking clickbait because it's often shorturl'd and this only runs before page load - doesn't stop you from seeing or clicking the links. Would be much more effective if it would find links, resolve their hosts, and then style those elements away. Even better if it handled social media in a sexy way, such as overlaying ontop of the expanded twitter and facebook links rather than just the text url. Food for thought, would be way more work than this was to make and I don't have the patience to do it myself :p Thanks for the cool extension though, might use it as a starting point to learn how to make extensions of my own...
  • (2015-02-12) Georgy Sabanov: Well executed, needs more options, like adding own sites to block list. You wouldn't believe how many click bait sites Sweden has....
