Suggestion for uBlock Origin WebSocket extension for Chrome/Chromium
Just tried this extension again, and here is something I noticed:
Default after installation:
When 'hiding' the icon:
Not really an alternative, in my opinion.
From the CWS description:
The extension has no interactive UI, just an icon in the toolbar to remind it's enabled. Your browser should allow you to hide the icon if it annoys you. Use uBlock Origin's logger if you want to see and possibly filter WebSocket connections.
Now it's just annoying in another place
I would definitely prefer if the icon could be hidden completely, especially since there is no UI whatsoever.
Status could be shown in the regular uBO UI, for example.
