Stop coin miners on the web!
No coin is a tiny browser extension aiming to block coin miners such as Coinhive.
Note: This is a very very early version, more features and a nicer design are planned.
Even though I think using coin mining in browser to monetize content is a great idea, abusing it is not. Some websites are running it during the entire browsing session which results in high consumption of your computers resources. I do believe that using it occasionally such as for the proof of work of a captcha is OK. But for an entire browsing session, the user should have the choice to opt-in which is the aim of this extension.
# How does it work?
The extension is simply blocking a list of blacklisted domains in *blacklist.txt*. Clicking on the icon will display you a button to pause/unpause No Coin. If you are aware of any scripts or services that provide coin mining the browser, please submit a PR on Github.
