Image from store PopUpOFF - Popup and overlay blocker
Description from store PopUpOFF is a tool, allowing you, my dear potential user, to forget about closing infinite popups that interrupt you from reading/watching or whatever you do on the vast spaces of the internet. I doubt you haven't faced sites, where you came just to read article and now leaving cause there are annoying things everywhere. So have I. So, shortly, what my extension does? It removes (in a few modes) popups, windows, panels, bars, overlays, omnipresent cookie notifications and blur wrappers, that prevent you from enjoyment here, in the internet. It allows you to scroll page down even if website forbids you. It's absolutely free and open source. You can find more info here: https://romanisthere.github.io/PopUpOFF-Website/ Pros and cons + Free - and will always be, open-sourced. + Ultra-lightweight. You can check size at right side and compare to different blockers - sometimes it's about 100 times. Don't trust anyone who says, that size doesn't matter. + PopUpOFF blocks all stuck to screen elements, not only popups. You will not find another extension like this in store. + Unique feature that allows you to "unlock" paid content on some websites. + You can write to me about any questions or suggestions, that you have - better about this tool, though - I will answer you. We can discuss any improvement! - It's addictive. For real, there will no way back if you start to use it. +- I still develop it and going to. It means, that there will be new features, but sometimes there could be bugs. It's common to any application, that you use, no one will write about it, but I want to be honest. That is it. Get your piece of better internet, send me feedback. Not saying goodbye. Have a good time!

  • (2020-07-18) Thallysson Costa: Ótimo! Obrigado! Resolveu meus problemas, tanto no Google Chrome e no New Microsoft Edge. Os dois navegadores que uso e essa extensão, super feliz.
  • (2020-07-05) EvgenKo423: This extension does a really great job on removing unwanted stuff. But unfortunately, it doesn't work automatically and according to the author won't be able to do so in a near future, so this basically kills all its pros.
  • (2020-07-02) Rafael Rodrigues: Works great. Easy to use. No complains
  • (2020-06-23) Keaton Nash: Really great, seems like every site has a modal asking you to sign up for their email or whatever and this extension is excellent at blocking them. Only suggestion would be a setting where it's always on, that way I don't have to turn it on every time I open a site
  • (2020-04-08) Soo Teck Quek: great stuff!
  • (2020-03-01) Rachamim Shemesh: The best Pop up blocker
  • (2020-02-02) micom fa: test on makeuseof.com, not working, thanks anyway.
  • (2020-01-07) What is Life: Just needs a bit more work. Prefect for regular use, but not if you watch video feeds in fullscreen, it'll kill the video too then once it's turned on. Opening a video feed into full screen while it's on and there will be no video feed. Also the shortcut only activates it, it doesn't deactivate the setting as well. I guess I'm an outlier on what I use this for, random popups over a video feed that are also there in fullscreen. Other than that, this is the must have extension.

  • (2020-05-27, v:1.1.4) Hypnotoad: Read Browsing History?
    I'm simply curious as to why my browsing history would need to be read by your add-on. I'll admit that I'm not too educated on the subject, but is there any particular reason why this is needed?
