It caters to PARTICULAR scenarios. This extension is okay to use along with similar extensions. Fixes redirects that has URL like : http://middlecompany.com/&http://theSiteYouWantToGo.com Note (Sept 2013), Yahoo has changed the inner workings of its site. So the usage scenario shown in my screenshot is no longer valid on Yahoo. I will change screenshot later on. == Two Features == * Fixes link redirects. Allows specifying custom links to work on or to avoid. * Removes link ‘Referrer‘. Its a totally separate feature than fix redirect. It can be disabled in extension Options. The site 'referral' information is removed behind the scenes and for that no icon (in address bar) or anything is shown, works silently. As side effect: * Removes middle-man / tracking. * Improves page load time = You train it by adding links to it as you use it. = == Two use Modes for Redirect feature == * Either Work on All redirect links (except ones in ‘disable’ list). Or * Work Only on specific links/sites that you added to its ‘enable’ list. (Default). Try both and see which suites you best. == How to use it == If webpage didn’t behaved or loaded as expected and there is a fix-url icon in Address Bar then click that icon and add the suggested URL to the disable list. As you use it more, the need to add sites to disable/enable list will get less. Manage list of URLs for which this extension is disabled in extension Options. Dark/black icon in Address Bar => extension is disabled. Dull Brownish icon in Address Bar => extension detects redirect but it didn't fix as site is not in its list. Click on icon to add/remove site. Red-black icon in Address Bar => extension fixed redirect link. == Why remove link Referrer (2nd feature) == When visiting a webpage, the referrer or referring page is the URL of the previous webpage from which a link was followed. Most web servers maintain logs of all traffic, and record the HTTP referer sent by the web browser for each request. The effect of this extension’s ‘remove Referrer’ feature is similar to attribute rel = noreferrer. == Issues == 2014-04: It now also works on 'https:' URLs. So some particular sites might act up. Add those sites to it's disable list. chrome://extensions -> Options -> disable list. == No stats or spyware == Permission warning because it works at deep level.

I was stuck with a CharmingShop redirect changing my Googles to Bing. I had something else that prevented redirects, and uninstalled it. This didn't work. For what it is worth, I found out that an untrustworthy extension was causing the redirect problem. I am giving this another try to see if it stops news site redirects.
Totally useless, does NOT work
As of this date it works very well on Chrome where both the Ublacklist and Block Site - Web Site Blocker For Chrome extensions both running at the same time didn't. You add and enable the URL from the site you don't wish to be re-directed from (which in my case was oncam.com)
