Praise for StopTheMadness:

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."

Glenn Fleishman of Macworld: "StopTheMadness buys you a priceless amount of peace of mind. It’s an extension designed around your needs, not that of sites you visit."
