README.md

boom!

Some websites have a lot of shit on them.

boom! is a browser extension that lets you declutter busy pages and make them readable again.

Before: A cluttered time.com article

After: A time.com article with the advertisements, social links, etc. removed

Some websites won't let you use them without creating an account.

boom! lets you knock down annoying paywalls.

Hiding Pinterest's paywall with boom!

Sound cool?

Check it out on the Chrome Web Store.

Usage

Click the bomb icon. The fuse should light. At this point, you can:

  • Click elements to delete them.
  • Hold shift and click text elements to make them more readable.

Hitting escape or clicking the bomb icon again defuses the extension.

You can toggle boom! with a hotkey by going to Tools -> Extensions and clicking the "Keyboard shortcuts" link at the bottom.
