Use Google Custom Search to define your own search that will exclude these sites. See this section in the help : How can I exclude sites and pages?.

Peter Steinberger has developed a Chrome and Safari extension called "stackoverflowerizer" that automatically redirects pages on efreedom.com, questionhub.com, etc. to the original StackOverflow page. It will rewrite your Google search results (to link directly to SO), but it won't remove the spam sites from Google.

You can try this GreaseMonkey script. I haven't tried it myself, but it was recently updated, so it should updated a year ago, but it will still work with Google's current results page, although instant search needs to be off. Simply edit the script and add the unwanted sites to the list of blocked sites.

If all you want to do is to prevent yourself from accessing certain domains there are a few options that immediately jump to mind. None of these will stop google returning these sites as results, but you won't be able to access them when it does. Edit your HOSTS file. Configure your router (if your router supports blocking of domains). Use a DNS service ...

Apart from a user script (which most likely would be what be needed to interrupt the scroll), it takes me two quick scrolls to get to the bottom. This could also be accomplished with End the key (on Mac Cmd and ↓ ) It is not a nice solution if you are not good quick scrolls, but it does the job for me. So far all the user-scripts I have seen have tried to ...

If your application uses the HTTP protocol, then you may use the Charles Web Debugging Proxy: Charles is an HTTP proxy / HTTP monitor / Reverse Proxy that enables a developer to view all of the HTTP and SSL / HTTPS traffic between their machine and the Internet. This includes requests, responses and the HTTP headers (which contain the cookies and caching ...

There is no "UnfriendFinder" alternative at the moment. However, you can export your friendlist to a .xls or .csv file. If you want to check, you just have to export your friendlist another time and compare it with the first one. This solution is very basic but it does work well.

If you use GreaseMonkey, you can hide the Hot Network Questions. CleanTube would work for YouTube. I agree with Punchlinern's sentiment, that instead of trying to find one add-on that will work across sites, you are looking at a bunch of workarounds rather than a tool that is smart enough to recognize what's central to a page vs. a distraction. Keep ...

I haven't found any extension like what you're describing either. A workaround could be to use Adblock Plus or another similar tool and block the specified elements on the sites. You have to do it on every site but I guess you'll eventually have saved time on it.

There may not be any addon which does the job but there are several userscripts which you can use. Here is a list of few of them : http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/153830 http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/124219 There are serveral others available at userscripts.org.

Social Fixer did the trick for me http://socialfixer.com/ Social fixer will let facebook to automatically load only 5 times, then you will have to click "More stories". From their website: "Posts will be auto-loaded as you scroll down, as it is by default on Facebook. However, Social Fixer stops the auto-loading after 5 page loads, to prevent their code ...

There is a bookmarklet available for Firefox and IE called DrawHere. It doesn't allow you draw shapes or text but you can draw freehand using the mouse. EDIT There is also http://scribblet.org/ the UI is very simple (it uses keyboard shortcut to control the colour etc) but does pretty much the same as DrawHere.

The keyboard shortcut for opening the diigolet sidebar appears to be disabled by default, so you if you open about:config and search for "extensions.diigotb.keys.sidebar" set enabled to true; extensions.diigotb.keys.sidebar.enabled = true then control-alt-s can be used to open and close the diigolet sidebar extensions.diigotb.keys.sidebar.keys = ...

Place an entry in your hosts† file that associates the efreedom.com domain names with the ip-addresses of (say) stackoverflow.com. This won't affect Google's results but clicking them will take you to wherever you have configured. † e.g. C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts on Windows XP.
