Unicorns this. Unicorns that. It seems like a new tech start-up is reaching that mythical $1 billion valuation every day, so if you’re tired of hearing about those dang unicorns, then here’s a Chrome plug-in for you.

Simply called the Unicorn Replacer, it calls out these companies for exactly what they are: pre-IPO startups worth $1 billion or more.

It’s direct and honest, and sure makes for a headline-killer. Here are a couple headlines and clips from around the web — including a few TNW articles. Yeah, we know we’re guilty too.

So download this plug-in and reserve unicorns for your Lisa Frank sticker book.
