WASHINGTON, Dec. 31 (UPI) -- Those tired of seeing news stories and other content about real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump can now block any mention of him through an add-on to Google Chrome.

Known simply as "Trump Filter", the add-on searches web pages striking away any mention of Donald Trump. Users can adjust the severity of their filtration by selecting from settings including mild, aggressive and vindictive.

The filter was created by self-proclaimed "punk rock technologist" Rob Spectre who poked fun at Trump's campaign slogan listing "Make America great again" as the final step of installing the filter.

According to the FAQ page on the filter's website, the open sourced application does not track users' web usage and Spectre does not profit financially from its use.

"I am doing this out of a profound sense of annoyance and patriotic duty," he wrote.

The add-on is available for download in the Google Chrome web store.
