China Web Boycott

As drama surrounding Ai Weiwei, the guy who was detained by Chinese authorities for tax evading, builds up, one of the programmers has created a web browser extension called “China Blocker”, which does exactly as described: blocks Chinese sites.

Why people are protesting? Ai Weiwei was a frequent spokesmen against the Chinese government and some people believe that this is the exact reason why Al was arrested.

China Blocker works with Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari web browsers and can be downloaded here.

    I can’t boycott sites that I already don’t visit. Chinese people may be very nice, but their government is just… laughable isn’t the word. After all, a third world country’s government is bound to be weak and poor… Their government is just that of a third world country, that’s it.
