Chrome: We’ve shown you many ways to avoid the less appealing folk on the internet, but if you find some communities are just too troll-infested, Comment Blocker will hide all comments on a specific site with a quick shortcut.
Seemingly based off Firefox’s previously mentioned CommentBlocker add-on, this iteration of the de-trolling extension brings the same features and more to Chrome. As usual, once you download and enable the extension, it will show an icon in your address bar from which you can choose to block or unblock all comments on a specific website.
What’s even better, though, is the extension’s options. You can choose whether comments are blocked by default or not, assign a keyboard shortcut to blocking and unblocking comments, and even choose how it blocks comments — either by collapsing them as if they don’t exist, hiding them so they take up the same space but are invisible, or replacing them all with another phrase. You can also create permanent blacklists and whitelists, for sites with especially good communities (like, say, your favourite software and productivity weblog) or bad ones.
Comment Blocker is a free download for Chrome only.
