This Chrome extension keeps trolls from spoiling 'The Force Awakens'

We're still three days out from the widespread premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but a select, lucky few have already seen the movie.

While we're obviously all thrilled for those folks, some of them seem to be having a hard time keeping their very spoiler-y thoughts and opinions about the movie to themselves.

In the hours after attending the premiere, a number of media types took to Twitter to share what they considered innocuous observations about The Force Awakens that, to some, could easily be interpreted as spoilers.


(Out of respect for nerds everywhere Fusion won't embed the tweets in question, but they aren't that hard to find.)

Rather than bemoaning peoples' lack of internet etiquette, Force Block, a handy Chrome extension, will aggressively scan and flag any and all web pages that even mention The Force Awakens.

While writing this piece, for example, Force Block politely warned me that I may be spoiling the movie for myself.


What the plug-in lacks in restraint, it more than makes up for with the fact that while using it, you can be almost 100% sure that you won't read anything on the internet about the movie until you're good and ready.
