And even if you manage to navigate all of that, there’s the fatigue, brought about by the relentless cascading of the Feed.
To combat this, web designers Rafaël Rozendaal and Jonas Lund built Text Free Browsing, a Chrome browser extension that acts like an internet minesweeper of sorts, turning off the words and leaving you with a safe, spartan, and far more palatable page. Just follow this link, add the extension, and click on the yellow smiley face emoji to toggle text on and off anywhere online.
