Remove desired parts from a URL via regular expression rules.
Link Cleaner extension removes or replaces desired parts from a URL with regular expression rules. The toolbar button is the ON|OFF switch to enable or disable the extension.
To work with this addon, please first open the options page. In the middle section, add a regex filter to match the request URL on the left side, then write a regex substitution pattern on the right side. For example:
Sample left-side regular expression rule: ^http[s]\:\/\/(example\.com)[\/]\?query\-1\=Q1\&query\-2\=Q2\&query\-3\=Q3\&query\-4\=Q4
Sample right-side regular expression rule: https://\1?query-1=Q1
With the above regular expression rule, if you navigate to URL #1 below in the address bar, it will be redirected to URL #2 (as shown in the first screenshot).
URL #1: https://example.com?query-1=Q1&query-2=Q2&query-3=Q3&query-4=Q4
URL #2: https://example.com?query-1=Q1
Note 1: The first match of the regex filter within the left side URL, will be replaced with the pattern on the right side URL.
Note 2: In the regex substitution pattern, backslash-escaped digits (\1 to \9) are used to insert the corresponding capture groups. \0 refers to the entire matching text (see sample rule #1).
Note 3: This extension only works when a URL or link is about to load in a tab or window; it does not change the link's href within the page.
