Link Cleaner

Find and install this extension on the Mozilla Add-ons website.

Browser extension to clean URLs that are about to be visited:

  • removes utm_* parameters
  • on item pages of aliexpress and amazon, removes tracking parameters
  • skip redirect pages of facebook, steam and reddit (directly go to the url being redirected to, and never hit their outgoing redirect tracking)

You can now visit and bookmark clean links instead of the long, tracking-enabled ones!

Examples:

Comparison to other add-ons

Unlike other legacy add-ons like CleanLinks, Link Cleaner doesn't inject JavaScript into pages to change links. Instead, it listens to main url requests and changes them (if needed to remove redirects or tracking.

That means it's doing less unneeded work and consumes less resources (memory and CPU).
