  • (2022-08-10) michael schumacher: Exactly what I needed, was really annoyed by a particular popup, thank you, nice job.
  • (2022-07-17) Little Fish: 是我想要的!
  • (2022-07-04) Faiz Redmi: nice job mate
  • (2022-02-01) REQUO: Works perfectly, thank you very much.
  • (2021-11-08) KJ Liu: So choice, and especially helpful with applications that require browser authentication (like Snowflake). It would be a nice if we could specify a delay (say, in seconds) to allow the tab to launch an application before being closed. Thinking here of Zoom, RingCentral, etc.
  • (2021-10-17) Harfho: Great Extension , can you pls add a way to set time before the tabs are close
  • (2021-09-12) Han Solo: The one and only extension that really does the job. Amazing. Only thing I regret : there's no Firefox version. That'd be great ! Thanks for sharing with us that great piece of coding.
  • (2021-08-19) behrouz 40: useful
  • (2021-02-26) sd di: very good
  • (2021-02-09) Michael Gavioli: SUPER. Must have addon!
  • (2020-04-09) mhmd gad: this need to be publicized more .
  • (2020-04-05) Mhmd Gad: awesome. finally . thank you .
  • (2020-01-21) El Zane: Works like a charm. Does exactly how it is supposed to. After manually adding those few nasty pop-ups that always appear to bypass my ad blocker (or for sites which won't work with enabled ad blockers), they are auto-closed near immediately and you are back at your origin tab. Bonus points for U Block Origin. It can close the annoying document blocked page of U B O, which otherwise is a fantastic Ad Blocker. So 5 stars for this one, great work!
  • (2020-01-16) Salty salt: came here to tell you: do not let the only tab be a site blocked by this site. If you turn on the browser it'll instantly close it before you get the chance to pick another site and naturally before you can unblock it either or disable the extension my solution is: right click the browser and you'll see your often-used sites. Pick the one that isn't blocked and open the browser with that site in it
  • (2019-06-16) TimeKeeper Bank: Took me a little while dev can you make the "save changes" button Green when the user enters a url but has not yet saved changes this would show all first time users where the button is. I almost wrote a bad review because it took me about 10 minutes of trouble shooting to find it. This extension would get more popular with a tutorial on youtube. I always block paid news sites and paid content sites as I find them soooo annoying. Thanks dev for your hard work!
  • (2019-06-10) Jawash Asalan: Perfekt! Blockt Seiten nicht nur sondern schließt sie gleich. Richtig praktisch, wenn Seiten immer zu bestimmte Seiten als Werbung öffnen. Hammer Extension!
  • (2019-05-01) Mercury Huỳnh: It's amazing extension! Block site and close tab automatically.
  • (2019-03-24) Dragan Vujanovic: I was searching for addon just like this one! All best
  • (2019-03-16) Ed Masin: This could potentially be a useful extension but it has a limit of about only 40-50 sites and after that you cant add more filters. For comparison other ad blockers can have tens of thousands of sites in their blacklists, my ublock extension have near 80000.
  • (2019-03-09) Nice extension, but missing export and import features. Is there a way can we export the websites that we blocked into an Excel file or something? I found this is really helpful so we don't have to re-type the URLs again, if we swap computers. Hope you would add this feature. Thank you
  • (2019-01-12) Barna Batki: Pont ilyet kerestem. Csodálatosan működik. :)
  • (2018-12-11) Francesco Collacciani: Finally a great extension!
  • (2018-09-26) Илья: It works!
  • (2018-09-04) Lucian Boroslache: Perfect!
  • (2018-07-07) Dev Sahoo: Great extension, bad name!
  • (2018-06-12) lookto myeye9: Best ad close
  • (2018-05-03) Fifth Dimension: Finally, deloton.com can go screw itself.
  • (2018-03-26) Mike Bilel: Finally a great extension! Not the greatest title though. Took me some time to find this.
  • (2018-03-07) NOUM: Why sometimes it works and then it stops?
  • (2018-02-14) TheDarkNeos: Awesome.
  • (2018-01-08) Ronaldo Veiga: You know when you are trying to download something and then an Ad Fly link apears. You click it and then it opens an anoying page you didn't want. This extension will close that tab for you!
  • (2017-10-22) BIOS-Pherecydes: Does exactly what it says it does, no more or less. Perfect. Thank you.
  • (2017-08-12) Thanasin Nampaisarn: Just like Julian Ingel said, it would be great if it allows an unlimited number of URLs to be blocked. Additional features such as wild cards would be very desirable, but the current functionality works already very well. It would be also extremely helpful if the blacklisted websites are not allowed to create message boxes (i.e., something like "Are you sure that you want to close this page? Yes/No"). I would pay for this kind of features.

  • (2017-05-27) Minh An Lê: thanks!
  • (2017-04-23) Julian Ingel: It is very useful but it is only limited upto 67 URL.
  • (2017-04-15) domin g o d: this is the only extension that will close a blocked domain automatically in incognito mode. others will just redirect you to another site of your choice which you will close anyway.

  • (2022-06-03, v: Jared Leander: Close about:blank after delay
    Hello, I am stuck using an application on chrome that when downloading PDFs opens a new window (to about:blank). Is there a way to configure this extension for about:blank URLs?
  • (2022-02-13, v: Paul Kobres: Last Hit Feature
    The last hit feature is nice (showing which website triggered the action) but in a long list it would be nice to be able to ID which rule was most recently triggered (or the last date a rule was triggered) - so to weed out / delete old clutter rules, and ID rules that are accidently closing WANTED pages.

  • (2018-03-21, v: Luís: can make browser autoclose
    so i got tired of at my job that my team kept using sites for leisure even thou i blocked them, what i did was add those sites like facebook to the list. removed icon from browser but one of them found the extention, removed facebook from the list, left the entry blank. Now they can only use the windows browser or chrome if they knew right button icognito thing. This fixed my problem with produtivity but i tought i share cause i just replicated what they did in my personal computer and same result , it autocloses, ofc i fixed it manualy removing the extention with command line but can rly break chrome if ppl do that by mistake like my worker
