Clutter Free – allow list and block list

Allow and block lists

Clutter Free now supports two modes of controlling which sites and pages are allowed to have duplicates:

Allow list
When the allow list is used, Clutter Free will prevent duplicates of all pages, except those in the allow list.

Block list
When the block list is used, Clutter Free will prevent duplicates only for pages and domains specified in the block list. All other websites and pages will be allowed to have duplicates.

The old whitelist feature is replaced by the allow and block lists. The whitelist entries have been added to the allow list, and allow list is enabled by default.


Domain block list

The domain block list provides an even stricter control over tabs from specific domains. Only one tab is allowed for any domains listed in the domain block list.

The domain block list considers subdomains, other than www., as separate from the parent domain and each other. E.g. blocking ‘mail.google.com‘ will prevent opening multiple Gmail tabs, but won’t prevent opening Google Sheets or Search in another tab.

The domain block list also over-rules the allow and block lists. If the same domain is in both lists, the domain block list takes priority.

The domain block list is now a supporter-only feature. Non-supporters who have it enabled at the time of this change will still be able to use it.


Bug Fixes and other updates

  1. Update: Faster switching of tabs on selection in tab search window.
  2. Bug Fix: Domains were not being added to allow list (prev. whitelist).
