What it is: Ex-blocker lets you hide your exes across Twitter, Facebook and others.
Love It: It does what it says. Deadly simple.
Hate It: Firefox and Chrome only, for now.
Ex-blocker is a plugin for Firefox and Chrome that will let you enter the name of your significant ex-other and then block you from seeing their updates on Twitter, Facebook or their blog.
While it’s probably a better option to live and let live, those former hookups or two-year stands always seem to pop up at just the wrong times. In avoiding those uncomfortable confrontations, Ex-blocker is a stroke of genius.
It’s worthy to note that Ex-blocker is also handy for blocking former in-laws, ex-roommates or even nosy people that you don’t like who tend to follow you anyway.
