    We need it for Safari on the iPad, too!

  15. [...] The Olympics are a grand spectacle that can take the host city years to prepare for—but mere hours for audiences to tire of. So if less than a day in you’ve already had your fill of Olympic updates and recaps, do yourself a favor and download F.A.T.’s browser blocking extension. [...]

  24. [...] Olwimpics is available for Chrome, Safari and Firefox, and turns any reference or mention of the term “Olympic” on a page into a colourful array of censor blocks. It’s that easy, as long as you also stay away from the TV, radio, and newspapers. [F.A.T. via TechCrunch] [...]

  38. [...] Olwimpics è la nuova estensione del browser – disponibile per Chrome, Firefox e Safari – creata dallo statunitense Greg Leuch per censurare i contenuti relativi alle olimpiadi sulle pagine web. L’idea è interessante: Londra 2012 ha “invaso” le testate d’attualità, le agenzie di stampa, i blog e i social network. È legittimo che qualcuno ne abbia abbastanza e preferisca rivolgere la propria attenzione ad altro soprattutto trovandosi ancora in ufficio a ridosso del mese di agosto. La realizzazione non è altrettanto entusiasmante. [...]
