I’d been thinking about writing a user script to prevent loading of particular network resources. The problem is that particular URLs are blocked — I’m guessing by this thing called Niometrics.
Basically there are readily available filter lists, but I’d like to have full control of what is blocked, hence I have filters of my own. Here it is, if you’re blocked like me:
The good thing is that wildcard (*) is supported, which makes things much less verbose than, say then a custom hosts file, which can grow to a nigh-unmanageable size.
If there’s one thing that I can complain about, it is the absolutely horrid icon. It’s so bad that I’d elect to hide it, preferring to access the options via chrome://chrome/extensions/ instead.
