Stopping GIF's in Chrome
« on: June 11, 2015, 04:15:57 PM »
Way back when I asked if anyone had any idea how to stop all the gif's on a particular site from auto-playing, but we never found an answer. Today I reached the end of my rope and searched again and found ... Gif Jam for Chrome.

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/g...bbboobalb?hl=en

It works!  thumbup.gif

For those with Firefox, there is hope (but I can't verify this):

I don’t like the fact that my chances of survival seem to be linked to the common sense of others. :Thinking:

Yup, but I have it turned off for this site. Only I really wanted the gif stopper for THIS site, which gives me a headache trying to read the local news.  rolleyes.gif

thumbup.gif notworthy.gif salute.gif coolio.gif harhar.gif yahoo.gif At least they don't use blinking, scrolling text for their news copy! clap.gif cheer.gif
deadhorse.gif scram.gif

Apparently, it is taking a bit longer for "wed design" skills to get all the way the to the Oregon coast... Maybe you should pass along a link to some of these sites:

There's always a silver lining, but don't give the owner any ideas. He's already turned off comments because they went against his point of view. wink.gif
