Description from extension meta

Quickly make exceptions to content settings (JavaScript, cookies, images, plug-ins) for some or all sites for a set time.

Image from store Temporary Content Settings
Description from store A button or popup for changing content settings for a set time. Temporary Content Settings lets you view a site or sites differently than usual — with or without any combination of JavaScript, images, cookies, and/or plug-ins — without creating growing lists of exceptions that must later be cleared manually. With one click, the settings of your choice are applied to the current subdomain, domain, or whole internet, kept for as long as you want, and reliably removed. A number on the button indicates the number of exception rules in effect. TempSettings makes it easier to manage your exposure to the leading technologies that may clutter up your screen, consume bandwidth, serve ads, and threaten your privacy — you can change your default Chrome settings to block whichever ones pose problems, then easily re-enable them when necessary. Or if you want to see what a site looks like without a given feature, you can temporarily block it. Permanent chrome exceptions can then be reserved for sites you visit regularly — the Options and Popup pages contain links to the appropriate lists. *Temporary Content Settings gets the job done with minimal permissions. It does not need access to "all your data". *Only runs on command and to update existing settings; does not consume memory the rest of the time. Feedback regarding function, features, and translations is greatly appreciated. ---2.1.5--- New base-domain-and-subdomains scope now works on pages belonging to base domain. ---2.1.4--- Added option to apply exceptions to the base domain and all subdomains (a change to sub1.example.com will also affect sub2.example.com). The default "current domain and all subdomains" option is more accurately renamed "current subdomain [...]". ---v. 2.1.3--- Radio buttons in the popup window for faster switching. Interface feedback welcome. ---v. 2.1.2--- By request, permanent exception button. Fix to popup vs. button mode. ---v. 2.1.1--- Popup opens faster. ---v. 2.1.0--- Reloading of pages with new settings more reliable.

  • (2023-02-09) Yuki Kart: Nice extension, on 2023 still working without a flaw
  • (2019-10-17) Armando Flores: cumple lo que promete, funciona perfectamente si se necesita trabajar en una web con css y js
  • (2018-11-25) Jim D: The only thing missing imo is the ability to remove exceptions on a case by case basis.
  • (2016-09-16) Awesome Privacy and Security Extension. Disable JavaScript in Chrome and run this extension. Then when you encounter a website whose functionality is broken, use this extension to quickly and temporarily enable JavaScript. Disabling JavaScript by default and selectively enabling it on sites you trust is probably the #1 thing you can do to increase both your security and privacy on the internet. This extension makes it easy!
  • (2016-06-29) I block all cookies by default and use this is add exceptions. Edit - it doesn't get stuck anymore - must have been related to a Chrome update at some point.
  • (2015-08-30) This iss very good...... the best one i ever used !
  • (2015-06-04) Spencer Easton: Google broke their content settings UI back in Chrome 42. I asked Mr. Berka to add a permanent change option and he delivered. Thanks much!
  • (2015-05-01) Wow, if this works it is gonna make a huge difference in helping me clean up my blacklists/whitelists. And it is excellent that the permissions are minimal... thanks for that! I'll come back and update this review once I've given it a full workout.

  • (2016-09-16, v:2.1.3) Feature Suggestion: Quick Remove Exceptions
    Hello, I have a suggestion for a feature that allows the user to quickly "remove exceptions" for a site. You already have this functionality built in but it is located on the options/settings dialog and takes several steps to access and apply the changes. I was thinking that you could move the function to the "right click menu" or create a 3rd drop down menu option under settings: when the icon is clicked, "toggle default options". Example: 1 icon click "immediately apply default options", second icon click "immediately remove exceptions". Thank you for your time and the very useful extension! Cheers!
  • (2016-04-17, v:2.1.3) Options
    This still works but I can no longer change the default options. JS neutral - cookie block so I manually do this every time. Maybe I'll change to a white list instead.
  • (2015-05-20, v:2.1.1) Spencer Easton: Allow for permanent changes
    If you noticed Chrome removed the quick access to site permission from the url bar. Can you add permanent changes to site settings in addition to times out settings? Thanks!
