StopTheMadness is a web browser extension for macOS that stops web sites from making your browser harder to use. And it protects your privacy on the web! StopTheMadness is compatible with all major web browsers on the Mac including Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome, and other Chromium-based browsers such as Microsoft Edge and Brave. Available exclusively in the Mac App Store.
John Gruber of Daring Fireball: "This extension works great and fixes so many little things that annoy me about websites."
Charlie Sorrel of Cult of Mac: "The good news is that you can wrest control of your browser back from these malicious, control-freak sites."
Bryan Chaffin of the Mac Observer: "It re-enables all the normal Mac services in Safari, and you control which services you want on a site-by-site-basis if you wish."
Josh Centers of TidBITS: "it’s a small price to pay to restore your control."
The developer of StopTheMadness is Jeff Johnson, famous for solving the Mac OCSP appocalypse. Jeff's other software includes Link Unshortener, a Mac app that expands shortened web links, and Underpass, a peer-to-peer encrypted file transfer and chat app for Mac and iOS. Jeff was a longtime engineer at Rogue Amoeba Software and also worked on the open source RSS reader Vienna.
