Chrome add-on removes sites from search results

The uBlackList browser extension allows you to exclude specified websites from search results while using Google, DuckDuckGo, Bing, and other search engines.

uBlackList is a browser plugin for Chromium and Firefox that allows you to input a list of websites to ban from search results.

uBlackList can block these sites from being displayed on the Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Ecosia, Qwant, StartPage, and Yahoo! Japan search engines, regardless of their quality, reputation for providing deceptive information, or your wish to view their content.

Eliminating sites from search results

Install the browser extension from the Chrome Web Store or Firefox Add-ons page to begin using uBlackList. Once installed, you may adjust the extension by clicking on its icon and selecting ‘Options’.

If you wanted to eliminate all pages from example.com and Wikipedia (just an example!) from search results, for instance, you might add the following patterns to uBlackList:

*://*.example.com/*
*://*.wikipedia.com/*

Once you click the Save button and do a search that produces Wikipedia results, you will see that they are no longer shown, as shown below.

Even more useful, the plugin adds a “Ban this site” link to URLs displayed in search results, allowing you to immediately block sites as you encounter them.

By default, the extension will only eliminate Google search results, but as previously stated, it also supports blocking sites from Bing, DuckDuckGo, Ecosia, Qwant, StartPage, and Yahoo! Japan.

It is also possible to define a URL containing a list of patterns to block, which will be constantly retrieved and updated.

You may also enable the extension to synchronize your settings across the Google Cloud, allowing you to utilize the same settings across many browsers.

I tried the extension throughout the day and found that it performed an excellent job of deleting sites that, in my opinion, cluttered malware removal-related search results.

Install uBlackList from the Google Chrome Web Store or the Mozilla Firefox Add-ons page, or get the source code from the project’s GitHub repository.
