This extension can hide or remove selected elements on a page. Useful for removing invasive adverts, banners and overlays.
The primary feature of this extension allows users to hide any element on the page with a simple right-click menu action.
Advanced features on the Options page also allows the user to automatically close invasive popup windows, as well as automatically hide selected elements when the page is loading.
Several other customizable settings are also available on the Options page.
- The primary right-click functionality of this extension does not permanently hide the element. Any page refresh will bring back the full page as intended. To automatically hide elements when loading a page please try the ‘Automatic Hiding’ feature on the Options page.
- Once the extension is added to Chrome, any pages you already have open will need to be refreshed for the extension to start working.
- The icon menu for chrome extensions should display to the right of the address bar (a puzzle piece).
