Many of the blogs and web sites I visit get hammered by video js ads to the point the sites are almost unusable. The pages are constantly reloading and you can't pause the video because the advertisers hide the pause button. This extension has solved that problem. It does not block ads, although I have noticed a great reduction in the video js ads. But more important is that the extension exposes the pause button, so when annoying ads do pop up, they are easy to stop.
