This Chrome extension blocks all mentions of Donald Trump
A Web developer has built a Chrome extension that allows you to block any mention of Donald Trump while you wonder round the Web, reports The Independent.
Trump Filter developed by Rob Spectre searches the Web pages you visit for references to Donald Trump and removes them from the page. However, there are adjustable levels of severity depending how much you loathe the Presidential candidate.
The filter settings are mild, aggressive, and vindictive. Mild blocks Trump’s own Twitter account from reaching your eyeballs, where as the vindictive setting entirely bans news websites that write about him. Spectre explains more about the project.
Trump Filter is presented as part of the antidote for this toxic candidacy. This Chrome extension will identify parts of a web page likely to contain Donald Trump and erase them from the Internet. Share with your friends and eliminate the only currency Trump can spend to win: brand recognition.
Naturally the comments on the chrome web store have been colorful, reflecting the increasingly bitter political lines being drawn ahead of this year’s election.
