Upd. Added instructions for Android
We have decided to create a new separate filter for irritating elements that disturb users or interfere with web surfing. As you may know, we already have a Social media filter that removes numerous social media widgets and different buttons – Like, Share, Tweet, etc (we are sure you have noticed how many of them are on certain websites). Our new filter will go further in making your surfing even more comfortable.
What it blocks
- Cookie usage notifications
- In-page pop-ups like subscription or downloading mobile app offers
- Harmless (the ones that do not block the access) messages asking you to disable ad blocking software
- Any distracting elements and notifications on the page, offering to set a start page, install a browser or to use a search engine by default
- Excessive third-party widgets like weather, currency exchange and stock market rates, and also online assistant widgets
How to install
