AlwaysKillSticky

A browser extension that automatically gets rid of sticky elements on websites you visit.

Installation

Chrome/Vivaldi

Firefox

Opera

  • Download the latest release, or build from source (see below).
  • Unzip the package.
  • Go to about://extensions in the URL bar.
  • Enable Developer Mode by clicking the button (Opera).
  • Click the “Load Unpacked Extension” button.
  • Select the AlwaysKillSticky-chrome folder.

Building from source

You can build the extension from source, using the provided build.php script.

Post-installation

If you follow the above instructions, AlwaysKillSticky should now be installed!

Stickies will not be killed yet; you must now add some URLs to the matching patterns list (or, switch to whitelist mode); see Usage, below.

Usage

Open the AlwaysKillSticky options window (either by clicking on the AlwaysKillSticky icon in your toolbar, or by going to your Extensions page, clicking “Details”, then clicking “Extension options”).

AlwaysKillSticky can work in either two modes: blacklist mode and whitelist mode.

In blacklist mode (the default), stickies will only be killed if:

  • the page URL matches one of the patterns in the matching patterns list, and;
  • the page does not match any of the patterns in the exclusion patterns list.

Conversely, in whitelist mode, the matching patterns list is ignored. Stickies are always killed, unless the page matches one of the patterns in the exclusion patterns list.

You can switch between blacklist mode and whitelist mode at any time.
