#Welcome to FaceBlock!

FB has placed ads on their main website. I don't like ads, especially intrusive ads, so i wrote an extension

Why?

Because FB has made ads indistinguishable from news feed content, thereby making them unblockable by systems such as [AdBlockPlus](https://adblockplus.org/).

ABP is currently working on a fix and as such I don't expect this extension to have a long life expectancy. But if you find ads as annoying as I do...[help yourself to the extension](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/faceblock/elfjdommhjddccnkaddkmbkmndmgennl) or if you are a developer and want a starting point for your own extension, then help yourself to the code repository.

Updates:

##26-Aug-2016

  • Removed uneeded permissions
  • Added a badge to show count of blocked ads

##25-Aug-2016 The extension is now serachable from the web store, yay.

##24-Aug-2016

##23-Aug-2016

  • It turns out there are a number of extensions named FaceBlock. I should have searched before naming this extension. But apparently duplicated extension names are allowed so...Modified the manifest and renamed the extension to something less...offensive: Welcome to FaceBlock!
