Epilepsy Blocker is a simple chrome extension that analyzes animated GIFs while you are browsing the web and blocks the ones that may cause an epileptic seizure. Think of it as an AdBlocker but for dangerous flashing GIFs. It uses a specialized algorithm based on the work of leading scientists in photosensitive epilepsy, like Dr. Harding from Cambridge University and Professor Binnie from King's College London.
