One click to close any overlay on any website.
Close any overlay on any website with a single click or keys.
Use keyboard shortcut on Windows ctrl+shift+x or on MacOS cmd+shift+x (think about x as the close button you can use on any website).
Once you get used to the keyboard shortcut, you'll be using it all the time and gonna love it ! ; )
* It works on any website. It doesn't rely on a static list of rules, as some other extensions.
* It doesn't require any permissions.
* No performance impact on your browsing. It will only activate when triggered.
Have you ever been to a website that displays an overlay and masks the content with a transparent background before seeing its content ?
This extension allows you to close easily those overlays with one click or a key press !
I built it for myself, and I use it every day, I'm glad that I can share this extension with everyone who is annoyed just like me ! And we are not alone, there is entire community who hates overlay popups, http://tabcloseddidntread.com/
