cleanPages readability update

Sadly it is broken again since the changes in the Chromium 64 engine.
I don’t know when or if I find the necessary spare time to fix it.

Since cleanPages finally broke with one of the latest Chromium updates because the OEX shim I use contained event creation code that is no longer supported I had to update it to get it working again.

You can download the fixed version 2.0.12 from my homepage:

http://quhno.internetstrahlen.de/Vivaldi/cleanPages.crx

You can install it in any Vivaldi version that allows dragging of CRX files to the vivaldi://extensions page.

You can reach the options from the extensions page or by pressing on the wrench icon of the cleaned page too.

Known Issue:

Vivaldi’s Spatial Navigation fails on the cleaned pages.

That is caused by the way cleanPages does the cleaning. It breaks on similar cleaning extensions too and there is nothing I can do against it because spatial navigation does not re-analyze pages that are changed by Javascript after the first full load.

 

PS: Does anyone still need a description of what it does? If yes I’ll write one.

PPS: I TOTALLY FORGOT to add any external libraries or tracking code 😀

    What does it do?

  2. Actually, that file installs as version 2.0.8 and does nothing for Vivaldi 1.15.1147.42 (Stable channel) (64-bit) on Debian Testing.

    • Yepp, sadly the Chromium authors changed some things and Vivaldi as Chromium core based browser inherited it – which in return broke the extension. Sadly I don’t have time to spare atm to fix it, because it would need a bigger rebuild of one module.

      PS: Just checked – the version on my server is 2.0.12 …
      … but that is b0rked too.
