Description from store Homepage: http://github.com/silverhammermba/silence Issue tracker: http://github.com/silverhammermba/silence/issues The "Web 2.0" movement is all about user-generated content. That's great. Unfortunately when it comes to user-generated comments, the result is usually asinine, ignorant, racist, cynical, depressing, spam, or generally infuriating. If you're like me and you can't look away, this extension can be a blessing. * No more comments * No more likes * No more share counts * No more +1s * No more popularity metrics in general Just content. Why Use This Extension? ======================= There are other comment blocking extensions out there. What makes this extension different? * Having a "show comments" button is like bringing a beer to an AA meeting: why have it there if you don't want to use it? The only way to show comments with this extension is to go to your settings and disable it entirely. * Likes, +1s, and other popularity measures can also be distracting. Who cares if millions of people hate a Youtube video that you like? This extension attempts to remove all such distractions. * Where possible, I have tried to avoid blocking your option to comment, share, like, etc. * This extension is open source. That means you can help to improve it and I can't be an asshole and sneak in spyware. Technical Details ================= As far as I know, there is no silver bullet for comment removal. This script uses a bunch of site-specific CSS rules to hide unwanted content. If a site you visit is unaffected by this extension, you can let me know and I'll see what I can do. Contributions are also welcome. Some sites (such as Facebook) do not provide a way to easily single out content for removal, so not all content can be blocked.

    I just downloaded this extension, settings show that it is turned on, but it does not appear to be working on any of the Youtube videos. Am I missing something? Like, is it necessary to completely close out and relaunch chrome, etc?
