: Kill Evil is a simple extension that disables annoying all across the web, like sites that won’t let you right-click, sites that won’t let you copy images, or sites that paste in citation links whenever you copy their text. Most of these annoying tweaks run on , and while you can disable all scripts with an extension like NoScript , you risk disabling features you actually want .

Kill Evil is a happy medium between the two: It lets JavaScript run on most pages, but disables some of the more popular people can add to their sites, including:

  • Sites that disable the right-click menu
  • Sites that automatically bring up the print dialog when you view the printer-friendly version of an article
  • Pages that prevent you from copying their text, add citation links to copied text , and more
  • Sites that don’t let you resize the window in a certain way
  • Sites that force you to open all links in a new tab

Every once in a while, it does get something wrong though, so if you find a page isn’t working correctly, you’ll still want to whitelist it in Kill Evil’s preferences (many of the extension’s reviews mention that you should whitelist most services, since they run a lot of JavaScript).

That said, it’s a great way to quickly get rid of some big web annoyances without blocking scripts altogether. Kill Evil is a free download, works wherever Chrome does.
