About this Add-on
This extension provides a right-click menu item: "Unsocialize", which will open the linked article in a new tab, bypassing the install request and any other tracking metrics.
It also works for some other types of links (e.g. Viddy videos, Socialcam links), and also can be used to bypass tracking of clicks on regular links, too.
*Known exceptions*: Does not work for Washington Post Social Reader links. They are much more challenging. I am working on it.
I appreciate your comments, suggestions and bug notifications: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is also a Google Chrome extension. The source for both is available on GitHub at https://github.com/mikeklawrence/Unsocialize
