Overview

Declutter webpages and improve readability... Point, click, boom!

Problem: Some websites have a lot of junk on them. ✔ boom! lets you declutter busy pages and make them readable again. Problem: Some websites won't let you use them without creating an account. ✔ boom! lets you knock down annoying paywalls and use websites like Pinterest or Groupon without signing up. Problem: Some websites show creepy advertisements. ✔ boom! lets you delete them to your heart's content. Problem: Some websites have terrible typography. ✔ Just shift-click a text element while boom! is active to improve its readability. Usage: Click the bomb icon. The fuse should light. At this point, you can: - Click elements to delete them. - Hold shift and click text elements to make them more readable. Hitting escape or clicking the bomb icon again defuses the extension. You can toggle boom! with a hotkey by going to Tools -> Extensions and clicking the "Keyboard shortcuts" link at the bottom. Bomb Logo by icon 54 from the Noun Project, Creative Commons 3.0

Works great! I would love an auto mode, or settings so the text is more readable for me (like font, colour and line spacing) because some websites make it SO hard! But as a decluttering app, it works really well.
