Chat Widgets take up data

By installing Hello, Goodbye you are not only blocking annoying widgets. Websites will be loading faster as well, since chat widgets take up time to load.

Even better: On mobile, you'll save your data for what you want to see, and not on annoying widgets.

Stay In Control

Obviously, you will need chat widgets at some point, to contact support. The extension helps you with this by indicating all sites where it has blocked a widget with a small badge. You can then disable the extension temporarily from the popup menu and access the help widget.

We all hate trackers.

That's why I decided to not track you around. There is no Google Analytics on this site, and there are absolutely no trackers in the extension.

The extension is open source and paid for by you. This means that nobody will be tracking you.

  • Why should I pay for a browser extension?

    A browser extension requires just as much work, as other apps. By paying for an extension, you are giving the developer (me) a financial reason to keep updating the extension. (By blocking other pop ups as well for example)
    Other ad blockers have chosen to whitelist some advertisers for money. I would be rather paid by you than by chat widget companies.
