What is Gossip Site Blocker?

'Gossip Site Blocker' is a user-friendly Firefox add-on. It assists users in blocking specific harmful sites, accounts on social media platforms like Twitter, or even blocking content based on certain keywords from their Google search results. This versatile tool offers both soft and hard blocking features. To ensure user experience, it inhibits blocked content from being viewed even for a moment. This might cause a slight shift in the layout which can be adjusted by resizing the window. It can also block card type search results, news, and videos.
