News Feed Eradicator has a simple goal: remove the news feed from Facebook to avoid getting distracted when you just want to send somebody a message.
It was born while I was completing my honours thesis at university. Sometimes
I would want to check my class group on Facebook, and instead find myself
scrolling for hours through the endless news feed, then forgetting what I
even opened Facebook for. After creating the extension I started to become
aware of just how often I would type
facebook.com into the browser
without being conscious of it.
