Redirects GamerGate boycott websites to the archive.today versions. This deprives the offending sites of clicks, views, and revenue.

Read and change all of the websites that you visit.
As explained here: https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/webRequest in order to catch every webrequest to check if it is going to a boycotted site, the extension needs to read each request. The write permission is because the extension writes helper buttons into Archive.is pages. If someone knows a way to reduce the permissions on GGBlocker, let me know.
===Version 1.3.4 Patch===
Repaired a Vivian replication glitch which occurred when multiple archive.is tabs were open. Thanks to @2CleverUsername for helping with this bug.
Added http://fieldguide.gizmodo.com/ to the default filter list.
Removed http://childsplaycharity.com from the default filter list.
NOTE: Changes to the default filter list will only affect new installs. I don't want to screw up existing customizations by forcing the new list.
===Version 1.3.3 Patch===
Removed 4chan.org from default filter list.
Tweaked tool button sizes to compensate for users running resolutions < 1080p. IT'S *CURRENT_YEAR* FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!
===Version 1.3.2 Update===
Switched default archive url to archive.is.
All archive.is pages now have a "Fetch Fresher Page" link.
Added the ability to delete filters. (finally).
Added basic update message functionality.
Added Tool Section inside of "Edit Filters".
Added tool for deleting all filters.
Added tool for exporting list of filters.
Added tool for importing list of filters.
Added tool for reseting filter list to default.
Added two bad jokes which I think are hilarious at this time of night.
===Version 1.2.1 Patch===
Fixed a time-related bug that affected late night and early morning users.
===Version 1.2 Update===
The extension now pulls the most recent copy of a blocked page from Archive.today, to the local hour.
Individual items on the boycott list can enabled or disabled according to your personal preferences.
New items can be added to your personal boycott list.
Added a quick archive button to save any webpage to archive.today or tweetsaver.
Added a new button that quickly enables or disables the extension.
Updated how the extension injects the "Add To Archive" button into pages for better compatibility with archive.today.
===Version 1.1 Update===
If a blocked webpage is not in archive.today, GGBlocker will now dynamically inject an "Add to Archive" button into the archive.today error page. This will should help to increase the archive.today coverage.
