Removes tracking tokens from URLs to keep them short & clean for sharing, saving, etc. UTM and others. Also skip tracking redirects.
Tracking Stripper: Some sites and email lists use links that contain url tracking tokens and tracking parameters (e.g. "utm_source=blah") in order to keep statistics on the source of traffic visiting their sites. URL Tracking Stripper will strip URL tracking parameters from URLs to keep them short and cleaner for sharing, bookmarking, instant messaging, etc.
This extension removes URL tracking parameters, URL tracking tokens, and UTM tracking tokens like Google Analytics™ (UTM) / Urchin™, Marketo™, Adobe Omniture SiteCatalyst™, and others, with more being added as I find them or people ask me.
Redirect Skipper: Some sites (like Google Search results or those that are part of affiliate networks) wrap the links on their pages in a quick redirect that is meant to cookie/track you before passing you on to the target URL. Often times this practice is disguised and not shown in the "hover" URL, but if you watch the network requests it sure does happen.
This extension will detect such redirects that it knows about and skip them altogether, instead going straight to the target URL. Currently supports Google Search Results redirects, with more being added as I find them or people ask me.
You can choose from several different "stripping methods" to suit your speed & privacy preferences.
The extension's icon will "activate" when a URL has been altered by this extension and it will show you what the original URL was. It also allows you to load that original URL unaltered if you like, which is useful if you are experiencing issues or want the full URL to load for whatever reason.
This is literally the Extension that I would want for this purpose and that's why I wrote it! Contact me for any requests or to add more trackers to block!
