** UPDATED and working 13/06/2014 to fix website changes **
The Fairfax Video Blocker extension blocks the videos that annoyingly auto play with articles on the Fairfax Media websites TheAge, SMH, Brisbane Times and WA Today.
Once a news article loads the section of the website that has the video will be blanked out so, especially if you open several tabs with an article in each, you won't have to hear the ads or video and can just read the story.
If you wish to view the videos again simply disable the extension, and then re-enable it once you have looked at the video you want.
