Covers triggering or unwanted web content with a removable screen
SafeScroll is a Chrome extension that gives users the power of content screening. Intended for trauma survivors, SafeScroll reads your webpage before you do and will throw up a removable block between you and the content you don't want to see. All content screens are easily removed by clicking the lock icon in the top-right corner. SafeScroll can act as a preemptive warning for possibly triggering material, but you always have the ability to dismiss the warning. If you decide you actually didn't want to see what was beneath, simply click the lock icon again to put the screen back in place. SafeScroll screening is fully customizable -- use default settings or dive into the details to block exactly what you need to.

I love the lock button to quickly take a peek anyways and I love that it blocks images as well. I do have this technical issue where adding a custom category makes it stop working for some reason

Preferably, to turn it off for certain websites (It blocks everything on google for me, likely because of a certain tag i have), and to be able to block images on discord and tumblr. Either way, it's really good! i hope it gets updated soon with the things i asked for.
