ClearURLs

Kevin Röbert, Firefox, Jan 21, 2022

After having seen one too many Urchin Tracking Module (UTM) tracking elements in website addresses (I have been removing these manually from the links I post in OLDaily) I decided to search for a way to eliminate them. There are some untrusted browser extensions that will do this, but ClearURLs is recommended by Mozilla. Works like a charm. Life is good again. No more tracking, no more fixing URLs manually. If you use Chrome (or Edge) like might be tougher since Google has removed ClearURLs from the extension store; it's still gone as of today, but you can load it manually.
