elementZapper v1.0

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Update 2014-12-23:
Yes I am aware that this Chrome extension is now broken. No I won’t fix it, I have other things on my mind and meanwhile another extension has popped up on the Chrome Web Store that provides the same functionality (and that one does work heh): Page Eraser.

I’ve just uploaded a first version of elementZapper, a very small Google Chrome extension that’ll allow you to quickly & easily remove elements on any Web page.

Its usage is rather simple: select anything on the page, right click and select “Zap!” and the selected elements will be removed from the page. It’s particularly useful for printing only what is relevant to you.

My goal with this extension was to discover Google Chrome’s extension development, mainly out of curiosity.. Now I can say that it’s pretty neat and easy to get started :)

elementZapper is available on the Chrome Web Store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/elementzapper/efeljanahmlnjhckmohcfbgkfdjdmnog?hl=en

Also, for those interested, the source code is available on GitHub: https://github.com/dsebastien/elementZapper
