Overview

Skip tracking redirects that serve no purpose other than to waste your valuable time.

Some websites use a redirect service to track outbound links. This puts an extra obfuscated hop between you and the destination of those links. This extension will intercept network requests on supported sites and instantly send you to the intended destination. For a list of domains that are supported by this extension, please visit https://github.com/bjornstar/intercept-redirect For Mozilla Firefox users - https://intercept-redirect.firefox.bjornstar.com For Microsoft Edge users - https://intercept-redirect.edge.bjornstar.com For Opera users - https://intercept-redirect.opera.bjornstar.com =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= What's new in the latest version? v8.13.0 - 2023-10-30 - Add `edgeservices.bing.com`

Works in Google but not in YouTube, yet YouTube is a supported site. Goto any YouTube video with a url in the video description, you will find this extension does not remove the redirect. Please fix it

This extension does not modify any of the pages that you visit. It's sole purpose is to intercept network requests intended for redirect services. It requests the bare minimum of access to these domains to protect your privacy and have the best performance. To test it you can go to a YouTube video like -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4noKkupxlE Click on the Show More button in the video description to reveal links which are using the YouTube redirection service like -- https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=g4noKkupxlE&redir_token=[REDACTED]&event=video_description&q=http%3A%2F%2Fblizz.ly%2FTracersComicChallenge Instead of the YouTube redirect service handling the network request, Intercept Redirect will handle it locally and instantly redirect it to the intended URL -- http://blizz.ly/TracersComicChallenge You'll need to open up your Inspector to the Network tab to catch the network request turning into a 307 Internal Redirect instead of a 302.
