A good extention. But it needs to behave like ADBlockers, so I should be able to ignore the entire page whenever I want instead of having to go through the allow and disallow process every time something comes up. If it had been properly and logically implemented, I would have utilised it more frequently. The extension ultimately produced more work than it was worth, so I had to simply turn it off.

The only redirect blocker that works
by Daniel G Daniel G, 2023-08-06

An absolute gem and necessity. Websites make you crawl all over the web so you can fully download their pages and ads. No more with this. The main problem is some websites make you crawl for their images and this extension will block that. A cool feature would be a check offenders for images and approve these when you click X button. Also you need to include a whitelist. With these two features the extension would be perfect.
