I am beyond excited to have found Facebook Blocker. As you might guess, I am not fond of all those like buttons popping up on every site in the internetz-universe. When I discovered the first Facebook Like Button over on Apple, I nearly fell off my chair. Here’s a brand, Apple, that I thought would *never* implement a Facebook button. I guess I was wrong.
Obviously I am not the only one that would love to see the web with less of those blue thumbs up buttons. So, a big thank you to Webgraph for having created the Facebook Blocker. This browser extension stops Facebook social plugins—including those within iFrames—from running on sites other than Facebook itself. This includes ‘Like’ buttons, ‘Recommended’ lists, and should also stop any Facebook scripts from tracking your browsing history.
Don’t worry: sites that use Facebook Connect for sign in purposes, or that use Facebook as a conduit for other functionality will continue to work as expected.
