Firefox tool erases Justin Bieber from Web

A developer has created a way for Firefox users to totally eliminate all Internet mentions of the teen idol.

Justin Bieber is everywhere. And if you're like so many others over the age of 15, you've seen enough. Luckily, a new Firefox add-on lets you remove all mentions of Bieber from the Web in one fell swoop.

The tool, dubbed Shaved Bieber, evaluates any page a person is browsing and censors all mentions of the teen idol. It works on every site, from Twitter to Google to Wikipedia. People can even go to his personal home page and watch as every mention of Bieber is blocked out.

Shaved Bieber is available in two versions: an add-on, which does all the Bieber removal itself, or a bookmarklet, which requires a person to click on it before it hides mentions of the pop star. The tool also censors photos labeld "Bieber" or "Justin Bieber," so users don't even have to look at him.

The anti-Bieber tool was developed by Greg Leuch, a developer for Free Art and Technology Lab. The organization is "dedicated to enriching the public domain through the research and development of creative technologies and media," the site claims.

Well, the lab certainly accomplished its goal this time around.
