Overview

This open-source extension automatically blocks Crypto Mining Scripts.

This Google Chrome extension automatically blocks known crypto web mining scripts. Recently ThePirateBay.org and Showtime.com were caught experimenting with CoinHive, a crypto miner for websites. While this looks like a promising solution to the dying ads market, the implementation of webmasters is simply full out wrong as CoinHive itself has concluded. A webmaster following the instructions of CoinHive's documentation will by default end up consuming up to 70% of every visitor's CPU until they close the website. While this might not be a problem for desktops engergy-wise, it will drain the battery of laptops and smartphones. And we haven't even talked about the CPU usage slowing the machine down, fan noise, heat and a shorter hardware life. Until a proper fix is released by CoinHive - for example requiring every visitor's consent before starting mining - I recommend manually adding a few block rules to your favorite ad blocker or installing this extension.

This is not good. It blocks sites with javascripts with names as difference-determiner.js ; just because it has "miner" in the name. difference-determiner.js is used in every Magento installation so it blocks millions of webstores. Bad.

Helped me SO many times already. Sometimes a website just tries to open x tabs which are closed immediately. Before that addon I wondered why my GPU would ramp up its fans to 100% for no apparent reason. Thanks guys for that awesome addon! <3
