About this Add-on
(Uses MurdochBlock.info's Master list of Murdoch owned web properties - v1.0)
While searching for an Add-on to block out News Corporation owned sites, I found there wasn't one that worked for me and covered the correct sites. I believe this is important enough a tool and set about working out how to make it for myself.
With the release of this version, I've reached a feature plateu. Trying to keep the code light, I don't want to add the configuration screens I originally envisioned. The greylist feature seems to cover most needs, there.
I'll release minor updates as the Master List of Murdoch owned websites evolves and I anticipate another update to handle a few minor issues I'm noticing. E.g: On some sites, need a second click through to allow a redirection to tags.news.com.au.
If you would like anything added or adjsted, let me know and I'll see about working it in.
