Notifying clickbait content to online news readers

Image from store Stop Clickbait
Description from store This extension works across multiple websites to identify clickbait content and notify it to the user. The user can block similar clickbait content (which works similar to adblock). It also has the option to ​report undetected links as clickbait. The user can also report misclassified links which are mistakenly detected as clickbait. Such feedback helps in improving the extension. It currently works on a number of selected websites. We would cover more websites in future.

  • (2017-06-04, v:0.1.8) Michael S.: Is this extension still supported?
    The extension allows reporting of clickbait, but beyond that does not provide any notification or indication for clickbait on FB and Twitter. The extension also does nothing upon reporting the clickbait. Is it still being supported? If so, any idea why it is not functioning properly for me?
  • (2016-11-07, v:0.1.7) Michal Weskida: Extension not working
    Hello. I was at the ASONAM 2016, listening to your idea and liked it a lot. Is there a possibility, that this extension will work correctly in the near future? I have installed it at the conference and also now, but it seems that it is not doing anything at the moment. Greetings from Poland.
  • (2016-11-06, v:0.1.6) For ozilla, On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS OS
    Is it available for the mentioned OS in subject of this question.. ?
  • (2016-11-06, v:0.1.6) Pratik Juikar: Doesn't work
    I've installed this extension as soon as I read about it in The Hindu. It does absolutely nothing. Even clicking on the extension icon doesn't show anything. My all other extensions are working fine.
