Skip intermediary pages that some pages use before redirecting to a final page.

Image from store Skip Redirect
Description from store Skip Redirect ===================== Some web pages use intermediary pages before redirecting to a final page. This webextension tries to extract the final url from the intermediary url and goes there straight away if successful. As an example, try this url: - www.google.com/chrome/?or-maybe-rather-firefox=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mozilla.org/ Please give feedback(see below) if you find websites where this fails or where you get redirected in a weird way when this add-on is enabled but not when it's disabled. See the add-on's preferences (also available by clicking the toolbar icon) for options. By default all URLs but the ones matching a no-skip-urls-list are checked for embedded URLs and redirects are skipped. Depending on the pages visited, this can cause problems. For example a dysfunctional login. The no-skip-urls-list can be edited to avoid these problems. There is also a skip-urls-list mode to avoid this kind of problem altogether. In skip-urls-list mode, all URLs for which redirects should be skipped need to be added to the skip-urls-list manually. Some websites use multiple url parameters like this: `www.example.com/page-we-want-to-skip?first=www.want-to-go-here.com&second=www.do-not-care-about-this-url.com` Skip Redirect does not know which is the right parameter, but you can edit the no-skip-parameter-list. Adding `first` would skip to the URL of `second` and vice versa. Adding both, `first` and `second` would cause no skipping.

  • (2023-03-16) I CC: Can't download file with Google Drive. This extension repeats redirect until chrome said "ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS"
  • (2023-02-18) Moo Scree: Still works very well for me! The blacklist feature (now called "No-skip-urls-list") supporting regular expressions is most welcome. So to avoid the most common headaches with this enabled (though it's just as easy to temporarily switch it Off when necessary), I add these domains to my "No-skip-urls-list" list: amazon.com bing.com google.com live.com microsoft.com xfinity.com
  • (2023-02-03) Ivan Ivanov: Не работает
  • (2023-01-28) mam man _88: It dosnt even work this app sucks and even when I add the links to the list it still dose nothing just look somewhere else its not here
  • (2023-01-18) wither on a stick: Some sites that you were redirected to aren't registered in this extension, so if you find yourself redirected to something you've never seen before, you can put the url that you were redirected to in the Skip-urls-list list so that you don't get redirected back to that site again.
  • (2022-12-28) Farzad Alipour: Just installed this because every news article I open has links in it using annoying redirects. This worked for the links I was trying to open. My ad-blocker stops redirects so I could not open the links. The redirects I was trying to open was "https://www.ojrq.net/p/?return=".
  • (2022-12-20) Shane Windsor: I don't know how this extension got on my device, maybe someone else who was using my computer installed it. It has caused me no shortage of grief, causing numerous websites to malfunction. Most notably, it tends to be disastrous when it comes to the internet archive, where it will "skip the redirect" of the internet archive and forward you to the current domain of the archive website which is a 404 at best and malware-ridden at worst.
  • (2022-12-06) Rob Conde: This doesn't work very often, like with google image search for example. Constant redirects to a warning.
  • (2022-09-06) Jason: Works well when it works, but on multiple popular sites with a search field that uses a normal HTTP redirect to access search results, this extension causes the redirect to go directly to the URL you searched for rather than to the results page. For example this is easily reproducible by entering a URL into the wayback machine and pressing enter http://web.archive.org.
  • (2022-08-25) raul preite: works very well, amazing

  • (2022-07-05) Urban Alič: Works as expected. It blocks annoying redirect warning pages that sometimes appear when opening even the most beingn web sites (eg. wikipeida.org). Recommended.
  • (2022-06-27) Mahdi Ali: Works perfectly
  • (2022-06-16) Clayton Araujo: awesome works like a charm
  • (2022-04-25) Jack Lilly: does not work, might be broken at the moment. still getting redirects on kissanime
  • (2022-04-08) Rafal Mikos: This is a must have extension for Pi-hole users. It solves blocking on hundreds of redirections made by shopping websites. Brilliant. Best feature of it is actually what `Anthony Lago` is complaining about - it blocks sponsored google shopping links on main search site, which very often are just scam links.
  • (2022-03-29) Laskar Pangeran: work but still redirect, and website I want to see is not shown again (try to see this: www.hkmarket1314.com) can you resolve it???

As soon as you download this extension, you'll also be downloading a virus (AdWare) because the virus comes with this Extension! File name: F_000809 Virus name: not-a-virus:HEUR:AdWare.Script.Generic Path: C:\Users\[User's Name]\AppData\Local\[The Browser You're Using\User Data\Profile1\Cache\f_000809 This extension is supposed to prevent redirects and instead of that, it brings with it a virus that will created tons of redirects! Time to report this app to Google!
  • (2021-05-17) Carlos Henrique: Perfect. Goodbye link shorteners. 05/16 Stopped blocking Captchas Perfeita. Adeus encurtadores de links. 16/05 Parou de bloquear os Captchas
  • (2021-05-01) Atif Ali: exceptional.... respect for developer. cheers.
  • (2021-04-01) Stanton McCandlish: Mostly I found this to be a "redirect nuker" not a skipper. The main reason I wanted it was for Google search links near top of results to stop piping through Google AdServices and just go directly to the end site (since I have AdServices blocked anyway). I have an extension (Reidrect Blocker, which despite its name IS actually a redir skipper) which does this perfectly, but doesn't work with some other redirects. I was hoping this one would handle those and also handle Google, probably the no. 1 most common redirect most of us run into. Instead, it just kills the redirect entirely; you click on it and you get neither the direct target page nor the AdServices-mediated path to the target page; you just get redirected (ironic!) back to a blank Google search page. So, FAIL. Maybe this work fine on some other site, I dunno. PS: I tried using it simultaneously with Redirect Blocker, and it still did the same thing, so I just can't use this.
  • (2021-03-22) Angelus_Solus: I'm still getting Goolge's worthless redirect notice...no matter WHAT setting I use. Thanks for a useless extension!
  • (2021-03-10) Wittmann666: It doesn't work in a site like https://www.skidrowreloaded.com/pc/
  • (2021-02-23) JoeGamer706: Skips shoptos queue-it page which helps people get the Xbox series x/PS5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwkRWbBbpO4&t
  • (2020-12-16) Alkaris: Garbage, doesn't work. DOES. NOT. PREVENT. REDIRECTS. ON. PAGES.
  • (2020-11-17) Mart R: Works well👍
  • (2020-11-16) Renan Coelho: Doesn't work.
  • (2020-11-12) ImSoNextLevel: Also, use this redirect thingy on Coolnewtabtheme.com!
  • (2020-09-30) Sun Kim: Saves a lot of time with shortlinks or URL shorteners (with ads) Its not 100% obviously but used in conjunction with Universal Bypass, it allows you to skip a lot of spammy URL shorteners with ads. There's a few URLs with unintended consequences where you can enter the main domain in the skip list and that takes care of it. Overall, this extension has saved me hours of waiting and clicking.
  • (2020-09-06) Sergey Twersky: Break links like https://disq.us/url?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.sordum.org%2F12964%2Fsafe-mode-launcher-v1-0%2F%3AJHE1SyP55Cvx1mDcpbgFMygryP4&cuid=1238250 or https://disq.us/url?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnews.ru%2Fnews%2Ftop%2F2020-09-04_revolyutsiya_v_mire_displeev%3A1-6T3LxSFP2l30ilbKiEaT0R7tw&cuid=1238250 Also It would be better if the extension will replace links to non-redirected links right on the page. In its current form, it is not clear whether the extension really helps to bypass redirects so as not to give conversion statistics to third parties.
  • (2020-09-05) 너굴맨: not working.
  • (2020-08-22) ceeUB -: This is a great feature for Chrome.. Stops annoying pages opening automatically leading to malware sites.works seamlessly. in fact this type of feature should be an inbuilt option in all browsers.

  • (2020-08-01, v:2.2.3) Andy Pramoedya-Soedarsono: some site still tries to redirect
    I think this site https://mangatx.com/ Has different redirect script because I click or right on the page or the link, it will pop up a new tab or windows and then call the ads, and your script is not notice it at all The time is random, so sometime after a while it will not redirect, but at least expected, suddenly when you just want to right and open new tab, it suddenly open new tab with first load the page logo and after that, the main ad page, so please check your script, thank you
