Hide pictures of medical conditions on wikipedia

Image from store No Gangrene
Description from store Hide gross pictures on wikipedia. If you're the sort of person who reads wikipedia with your right hand poised over the right side panel, this extension is for you. It detects pages about medical conditions and obscures the images by replacing them with a picture of an alpaca. Mousing over the image reveals the original.

  • (2015-07-18) Laetitia Jacquet: 1st of all: this is a brilliant idea! But it needs perfectioning: - There's a millisecond where you actually see the original image, which might actually scare you (the stress you will endure will last for a much longer time) - It covers up all of wikipedia's images, even the ones that don't repulse you. But that's not that bad... Suggestions: - maybe add a preferences option, where you can choose which pages to 'block' and which not. i.e.: a page about Disney characters can be shown without problems, but pages about bugs & diseases would be 'censored'. - make it for the whole word wide web, please! it would be very helpful for a lot of people. Lastly: still, a big thank you for coming up with this idea and making it happen.
