QuickNuke Safari Extension lets you temporarily hide ("nuke") any element on a Web page quickly and easily. Changes are only temporary; if you reload the page, the hidden elements come back. This is especially useful for removing unwanted elements before printing a page. You can also "isolate" an element, hiding everything except that element. This can be useful, for example, when you want to print an article body or a table without printing everything else on the page.

What's New

Version 1.3:
  • QuickNuke now has an optional toolbar button that initiates (or exits) "extended mode". The button is hidden by default. To enable it, right-click the toolbar, select "Customize...", and drag the QuickNuke button to your toolbar.


  • Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later
  • Safari 5.0.1 or later

Thanks for the responses. It seems to work now, I don't know why.
But... I found that I cannot use Window -> Activity to download a
YouTube video if QuickNuke is on. Therefore, I had to trash it. Sorry.
The app is nice otherwise.

This sounds promising. However, I tried it to install. Then, Youtube gives me
video that stops every 10 seconds. When I switch the extension off, it works
normal, as before. May be, my bad luck. I am using snow leopard on MacBook.

I don't have this issue, but then again I'm using YouTube5, so I don't see the normal Flash player on YouTube. Anyway, I would report this directly to the developer--I've always found him to be responsive and helpful.

I haven't been able to duplicate the problem on my computer. I can't think why QuickNuke would cause that to happen, as it doesn't use any timers. Does it happen on every YouTube video, and only on YouTube videos?

Are there plans to implement a feature like rightsizer has where you can choose to keep the "nuked" items on a site to site basis so it's not just quicknuke? Maybe plans for another extension that handles sites visited often? That would be killer, I really like your extensions so thank you!

If there are no plans to implement something like quicknuke for sites you visit often or have it remember items removed what would be the best way of achieving this feature? I don't think there is any easy answer, please, we/I need a quicknuke that remembers elements I don't want on sites I visit often. This is great for use on sites you don't visit often though, super simple to use but powerful. I have to say, you put out some of the most useful extensions so thanks for your work. I need to donate ;).

From the developer's site: "So as not to duplicate the functionality of AdBlock or User CSS, I have no plans to implement "sticky deletions" in a future version."

It's fairly simple to add custom element filters to the AdBlock extensions or Safari AdBlocker plugin (though I don't know anything about User CSS), so the current approach to QuickNuke makes sense to me--I would use it, for example, to get rid of an annoying element on an article page that someone linked me to on a site that I may never visit again. Anyway, I agree that this dev makes many of the most useful extensions out there (and provides excellent support) and definitely deserves a donation.

I've recently released an extension called Quickstyle (it's actually the next generation of Rightsizer) that will do what you want: persistently hide elements on a page. It's here:
