Are you getting fed up of all the clutter polluting your web browser every time you visit a web page?

"Please accept cookies"... "Indicate your GDPR consent"... "Sign up to our mailinglist"... "Here's an autoplaying video I'm going to shove down your throat"... "Before you go, sign up"...

GAH!! It's like being back in the 90's where Internet Explorer was drowned in popups, except this time, these annoying popups are appearing inside the actual web pages as modal dialog boxes.

So we wrote a handy browser extension to get rid of this clutter... ShyteAway!


  • Blocks modal dialog boxes except for menus and logins
  • Blocks cookie / GDPR consent nag boxes
  • Stops timed "sign up for stuff" boxes from appearing

2021-09-SEPTEMBER-22-WEDNESDAY Works so well EVERY website becomes a blank white page like it's blocking EVERYTHING! In this case might as well just disconnect from the internet and surf the invisible web in your mind. Can't use let alone even read a single thing from ANY website I've come across (Google Docs, Sheets, also fail to function) ShyteAway - GDPR consent & popup blocker Offered by: michaeljtbrooks Version 0.3.1 Updated October 3, 2020 Size 193KiB Language English (UK) Developer Contact the developer 40 Cobholm Place Cambridge CB4 2UN United Kingdom

Needs a site whitelist so that it doesn't impede functionality on certain websites while still blocking all others.
