Wherever you go online, there’s a glut of celebrity news coverage that may or may not be of interest to you. If you’re like me, it’s all either interesting or easily ignored, but some people are a little more… ahem, intense in their dislike of celebrities. Say you hate the Kardashians, or Lady Gaga, or whoever else. Best avoid every website ever then? Not so fast my friend. Meet the greatest Google Chrome extension ever: Silence of the Celebs.
Silence of the Celebs (developed by Gesture Theory) is an extension for Google Chrome’s web browser that removes celebrity results from a multitude of popular websites, including Twitter, The New York Times, CNN, Huffington Post, Google News, Gawker, Mashable, and TMZ. Amazingly enough, the Twitter blocks occur in real time, so if you’re sick to death of hearing about Rebecca Black, you can ban her from your Twitter timeline posthaste and free yourself from Friday-related news.
If this extension works half as well as it promises, this is going to be one of the most popular things ever released for Google Chrome.Technorati Tags: celeb filter removes key names from internet, celebrities blocker, celebrity news filter, gesture theory, gossip, Hollywood, silence of the celebs, website filter blocks celebrities
