Redirects the Daily Mail and Daily Express websites to Tea and Kittens.
The Daily Mail and Daily Express are popular UK tabloid newspapers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daily_Mail http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daily_Express When using the internet in the UK it's almost impossible to avoid occasionally accessing the website of one or the other, even if one finds their political and social outlook unpleasant or offensive. KittenBlock is designed to solve this problem. It performs one simple function: if the browser is directed to either website it will be redirected instead to a selection of photos from http://www.teaandkittens.co.uk. There is no override option, and there are no options to configure. The extension can be disabled in the usual manner should the user wish. NEW: Updated v1.1 changes the manifest file format, so this extension works with recent versions of Chrome.
- (2020-02-17) Someone Bald: Been using this since V1.0 It needs updating to include the S*n and the Star now.
- (2019-05-24) Matt Jack: Thank you, not all heroes wear capes
- (2019-03-17) David Selby: One possible problem: it blocks the web site of local newspaper hulldailymail.co.uk, which as far as I know has no relationship with the national Daily Mail.
- (2019-01-30) Mark Daykin: I can prevent any accidental clicks delivering advertising revenue for those cauldrons of hate - thank you :)
- (2016-09-26) Paul Oldham: I've used this for years on, ahem, Firefox so I was pleased to find in here on Chrome too. The only problem is that, unlike the Firefox version, it gives a false positive on the relatively benign http://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/
- (2015-01-31) Ryan Docherty: It's temperamental, I accidentally clicked a DM link and was able to get on it. I almost had a stroke.
- (2014-10-23) Amy Block: Saves me a few seconds of outrage profiting petty people. Great plug-in!
- (2014-06-12) Kristen Jones: Wonderful extension that helps prevent accidentaly seeing one of these rag's sites and thus prevent traffic going to the sites. I'd suggest adding The Metro paper as that's owned by the Daily Fail and has just as awful journalism
- (2014-03-17) Mark Daykin: Thank you on helping me avoid contributing to their advertising revenue
- (2013-10-01) Rob Cornelius: perfect... just what I need to make the internet usable again
- (2013-08-24) Mark Robbins: This is very useful for publicly accessed computer. I suggest installing across you local library, school or place of work.
- (2013-05-09) It's made Twitter usable again.
- (2013-04-24) Theresa R: Has saved me so much time and impotent rage. Thank you, Tom Royal.
- (2013-04-23) A great safety net, just in case a DM link is hidden behind a URL shortener.
- (2013-03-16) Mike McLoughlin: Wonderful and essential. Shame there is no way to add other Rags to the list.
- (2013-03-13) James Eyre: I'm sick of being directed to these websites with their poor quality, inflammatory, misleading, and hate-mongering 'journalism'! Thanks Kitten Block, you've made it safe for me to browse again :-)
- (2012-12-14) Kenton Price: The best Chrome extension of all time. Saved me from several cardiacs.
- (2012-11-13) Ian Corns: An essential part of the Chrome user's toolkit. One concern though is The Mail on Sunday is not covered, meaning I just had the scare of my life when following a link blind. This must be fixed, as the psychological impact of even just this brief 5 second flirtation with the essence of evil has set my recovery back years from the last incident (my father left the daily mail behind a cushion when I visited)
- (2012-08-04) Fi Neil: I try to avoid the Daily Fail as much as possible, this extension makes sure that I never visit it. Could do with a puppy version.
- (2011-11-11) Anna Pickard: Excellent. Truly excellent. Only, is it possible to get a kitten-only version? I don't like tea.
- (2011-11-04) Nathaniel Lawns: When browsing social media, some unscrupulous users linked to Daily Mail articles, this is unacceptable. Kitten block helps me very well here.
