No FancyBox Safari Extension1.3

24 December 2011

Disables pop-up JavaScript fancybox.

Overview

No FancyBox Safari Extension is an extension for Safari 5, which disables (as far as possible) the 'fancybox' that pops up almost everywhere these days.

'fancybox' is a JavaScript pop-up box, which spends a lot of CPU-time and resources while loading. It's mainly used for advertising, so there's usually no deal in having it around.

I have been happily using FancyBox for my portfolio website :( I had no idea anyone had negative feelings about it. It's the easiest and most versatile lightbox I've found. Can anyone recommend another if people are going to start blocking it?

To those of you, who voted down that I'd think about a way for making it possible to see fancyboxes that do not pop up automatically, I have good news: I've decided not to allow No FancyBox show any fancyboxes. If you want to see the target image (or whatever is in it), you can right-click and choose "Open in New Window" or "Open in New Tab". :)

Fancybox itself doesn't use much CPU, but its probably the Flash/Video ads being served in the Fancybox that are taking up a lot of the CPU. Fancybox is extremely common on portfolio sites, and there are many legitimate uses. I haven't seen a lot of ads being served up in Fancybox (which is just one specific version of the Lightbox effect). This blocker seems like it would interfere more than it would help.
