README.md

ekill

It's like xkill, but for annoying web pages instead.

Chrome and Firefox plugin for quickly getting rid of elements on a web page.

Installation

Example

Keyboard shortcut

By default ekill is toggled with ctrl+k, but this can be modified at will.

Go to chrome://extensions/shortcuts, find the item labeled "ekill" and set it to whatever is most convenient.

Options

Grudge (Experimental)

Turning this feature on, will let ekill hold a grudge against offending elements.

By keeping a record of killed of elements on a per page basis, ekill will try it's best to remove these elements on subsequent visits to the same page.

A rudimentary ui for toggling Grudge, as well as listing and editing the hit list, is included in the options page.
