Utilities Extension for Brave
An extension with useful utilities for the Brave Browser made by me, Matthew Ludwig. Currently only one such utility exists, and it is the Annoying New Tab Creation Blocker (ANT-CB). In the current version, a demo of a suggested feature change to Brave Payments exists and further details can be seen here: https://community.brave.com/t/brave-utilities-extension-released-feature-suggestion-demo/45073 I know it's not a majority of the internet, but there are occasionally sites that will make it so clicking on a seemingly normal button / link / or video will open up a new tab or window with an ad. This can sometimes happen 3 or 4 times before the site finally lets you click on what you were trying to click on, so I created the ANT-CB. Simply open the extension popup, and click "Activate Blocker". Now no new tabs or windows can be created in your browser. To turn it off, simply open the popup again and click "Deactivate Blocker". The number of **recently** blocked ANTs will be shown on the extension icon and will decrease by 1 every minute. The blocker isn't intelligent and simply works based on an on/off switch, so turn it on any time you enter any site that is known to create Annoying New Tabs or turn it on once you see the first ANT (no need to reload the tab, the extension simply blocks any and all new tabs created while the blocker is active).
