Protect yourself from Star Wars spoilers with this browser extension

56 sec read

With less than a month to go before Star Wars: The Force Awakens launches, those of us who have been doing everything we can to avoid spoilers are in the homestretch, but things are more difficult than ever. A fresh batch of spoilers was just unleashed on the Web, with more undoubtedly following in the weeks to come, which has prompted a saint of a developer to release a new Google Chrome extension that automatically detects spoilers and prevents you from reading them.  

There’s only 20 days before Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in cinemas across the globe, which means trailers, spoilers and other related tidbits are (quite literally) all over the internet. Some people can see loads of trailers, trawl through every spoiler and still have a great viewing experience. Others seem allergic to any mention of their favourite upcoming movie and tend to avoid even the slightest hint of a spoiler like the plague. Well, the latter crowd are in luck because there’s a new Chrome extension created specially for those who want to avoid Star Wars spoilers in these crucial last few weeks. The premise is simple. Whenever the extension detects a potential spoiler related to the new Star Wars film on any page you’re browsing, it’ll automatically display a protective overlay. Which you can remove at your own risk. Reports suggest it’s a little trigger happy, but that’s probably a good thing. Of course it’s also a great option for Star Wars haters too who might be a little too sick of all this Jedi nonsense by now.
