Did not work to stop the animation I was targeting. The site I wanted to browse has a "search" bar that plays several animations of "suggested searches" on a loop. Because the bar is pinned to the top of the page as you scroll, I could not use the website without the animation pulling my attention. This extension did not fix the issue.

The update now works for me on ChromeOS chrome. An option like "play animation once, click (or alt-click, etc) to replay" would make it better. Also animations not shown on the screen but loaded further down the page will play thru and stop so you won't see them without a reload. <old review> doesn't work. why would it? It's made by Google.
