New Chrome extension lets you mute all ‘Pokemon Go’ mentions on the internet

Pokemon Go clearly has a lot of fans, but if you’re one of the many that simply have no interest — whether it be in Pokemon itself, gaming in general, augmented reality, or giving Google all your data — there’s now a Chrome extension made just for you. “Pokemon NO!” is a free extension that allows you to mute all mentions of Pokemon Go on the web…

Personally, I don’t see how this is useful for anything beyond just a few laughs. If you install it, it’s just going to leave a lot of white space all over the place and you’re still going to know full well that the entire internet just can’t get over this game. The extension’s example video shows this perfectly with a Google search of “Pokemon”.

If you want to grab this extension, head over to the Chrome web store — although I don’t know if it’s going to let you “enjoy seeing real news events and important things on your browser again” as the extension’s description suggests.
