  • (2019-09-28) J J: Another GARBAGE POS extension that doesn't work.
  • (2019-07-10) Vicki Robinson: It didn't work. Can't be more useless than that!
  • (2018-04-08) Дмитрий Голик: Во-первых, надо каждый раз жать кнопку, во-вторых, оно прячет с концами все файлы с расширением .gif, даже не анимированные, вместо того, чтобы оставлять первый кадр. А вот ежели у анимированного гифа не будет расширения .gif (что сплошь и рядом), то он останется в первозданном виде.
  • (2016-03-25) This extension will not function in this article. http://www.greenbot.com/article/3047831/android/10-things-we-miss-about-landlines.html I want to view the article without having to block every image using AdBlock's "Block an ad" feature.
  • (2015-11-21) John Schock: did nothing at all. running Google Chrome Version 46.0.2490.80
  • (2015-10-02) bee ‌: Hid some gifs, but not ones set as the background of a page.
  • (2015-07-07) Hossam Mourad: Why is this not working on Tumblr GIFS? I think most people will use this extension for only that purpose.
  • (2015-06-26) Sarah Tasko: Saves my eyes!!! Omg it is a life saver! On pages on Tumblr where the person has set a gif as a huge photo on the sidebar and it is super distracting while trying to read a post this just eliminates the GIF entirely! Love it, unlike others which did not work at all!
  • (2013-11-14) Great. To me, nearly all animated GIFs are just a nuisance, and this is the first GIF stopper that seems to work. I would have given it 5 stars if it had an option to freeze all animated GIFs automatically on page load, instead of having to click the button every time. It really would deserve 254 stars if it also had an option to freeze animated GIFs at the first frame, instead of completely hiding them.
  • (2013-11-08) oszkarsag: Don't be confused: this is for turning of DISTRACTING gifs, when articles you want to read illustrate their subject with images moving around, and make it hard to read for you. It works simple as hell, adds an ON/OFF button, and when hide is ON, gifs get hidden, and you can turn them on again with a single click. Perfectly does its function, and cute icon :)

    The extention will not function on XenPhoro forums (Perhaps because the server mislabels the files as .png, .jpeg or provide no suffix at all.) Please fix! http://forums.katbox.net/ http://officialchat.net/ (Example xenphoro sites)
