CatBlock (previously known as "AdBlock with CatBlock") is like an ad blocking extension, but instead of blocking ads it shows you pictures of cats by default (configurable).
You can also disable replacing ads by cats, so CatBlock can work as a standard ad blocking extension (useful for when you're doing presentations anywhere!)
If you want to find out the history of this extension, you can check it out here.
AdBlock has recently switched to the Adblock Plus codebase in version 3.0, but instead of importing those changes to CatBlock, we think it would be better to improve the original codebase.
If you can't wait for an official release of CatBlock on Windows Store, find out how to sideload CatBlock on Edge right now.
CatBlock is compatible with following browsers:
- Chrome: 49+
- Opera: 35+
- Safari: 6+
- Firefox: 48+
- Edge: Windows 10 Anniversary - version 1607
Tools we use
We use many different services to help keep CatBlock working! We use Travis to build new versions automatically for us.
We also have Travis connected to , to run a few automated unit tests for us. If "builds:passing" shows at the top of this README, then it's probably working fine, otherwise the current version of the code might not work so well.
How to build the extension or create a development environment?
The development guide will make your life easier if you need to build CatBlock or create an unpacked development environment and change the source code.

Get in touch with us
We use Slack a lot - make an account at http://catblock-slackin.herokuapp.com and log in at https://catblock.slack.com. You can ask questions there (the main contributors are all in Europe, so anyone in Australia should expect a bit of a wait).
