Chrome Browser Extension Allows Users To Remove Specific Sites From Search Results

The uBlackList browser extension allows users to edit search results by removing specific sites when doing Google, DuckDuckGo, and Bing online searches.

uBlackList is a browser extension for both Chromium and Firefox that enables users to enter a list of websites to be blocked from search results.

Whether these sites are low quality or contain misleading information, uBlackList can prevent them from popping up on Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Ecosia, Qwant, StartPage, and Yahoo! Japan search engines.

To begin using uBlackList, install the browser extension from the Chrome Web Store or Firefox Add-ons page. Once done, click on the extension’s icon and select ‘Options’ to configure the extension.

Once on the options screen, users may add the sites they wish to block from search results through regular expressions or match patterns.

Moreover, the extension also has a ‘Block this site” link next to URLs shown in search results, seamlessly enabling users to block sites as they see them.

It is also possible to configure a URL that has a list of patterns that should be blocked, which will then be downloaded and updated periodically.

Furthermore, users may configure the extension to synchronize settings across the Google Cloud, enabling users to have the same settings on various browsers.

Users who want to try out uBlackList may install it from the Google Chrome Web Store or Mozilla Firefox Add-ons page or download it from the project’s GitHub page.
