  • (2018-09-10) Matt Hill: OMG, thank you so much! Removes all the clickbait "news" from the CNN page!
  • (2017-11-14) Andrew W: Excellent add-on to warn about the trash on a leading news website that routinely makes terrible editorial and syndication decisions.
  • (2017-10-17) Julian Melville: Really helps take out the trash from the front page of the Herald. Doesn't get in the way.
  • (2017-03-08) Blair Strong: Probably the best NZ Herald plugin available.

  • (2017-06-01, v:0.5) Dave Dustin: Support for the new layout
    Please consider revisiting the extension to support the new layout they're working on.
  • (2017-03-09, v:0.2) Paul Brabet: How is PR news recognised?
    I am aware that this stuff gets in the news, but I'm a PR layman who doesn't know how to tell the difference. So, how does a news article get identified as PR? Today's example was "Real estate watchdog investigates 300 flipping cases" and was labelled 'Planet Key PR'.
  • (2017-03-07, v:0.2) Timothée Duhamel: Doesn't appear to be doing anything
    Doesn't appear to be doing anything on any NZHerald sites. Have tested on various syndicated content and on different Chrome Profiles. No Dog Dick Red to be seen :(
