ekill - nuke annoying page elements

On most *nix systems running the X Window System, you have a small tool for killing unresponsive windows called xkill:

xkill

Basically it works by locating the owning process of the window and forcefull kills it when the window is clicked.

In the spirit of xkill, I've built an open source webextension for Chrome and Firefox that let's you get rid of annoying elements on a web page, simply by clicking on them. Think intrusive cookie popups, chat windows or newsletter prompts.

Here's the web store promo video to see it in action:
