This open-source extension automatically blocks Crypto Mining Scripts.
This Google Chrome extension automatically blocks known crypto web mining scripts. Recently ThePirateBay.org and Showtime.com were caught experimenting with CoinHive, a crypto miner for websites. While this looks like a promising solution to the dying ads market, the implementation of webmasters is simply full out wrong as CoinHive itself has concluded. A webmaster following the instructions of CoinHive's documentation will by default end up consuming up to 70% of every visitor's CPU until they close the website. While this might not be a problem for desktops engergy-wise, it will drain the battery of laptops and smartphones. And we haven't even talked about the CPU usage slowing the machine down, fan noise, heat and a shorter hardware life. Until a proper fix is released by CoinHive - for example requiring every visitor's consent before starting mining - I recommend manually adding a few block rules to your favorite ad blocker or installing this extension.
