A new Google Chrome plug-in claims to be able to block Star Wars spoilers. Force Block: the Star Wars spoiler blocker prevents you from visiting web pages that may contain spoilers for the seventh episode.

When visiting a possibly spoiler-filled page, a message pops up letting the user know that the contents of the page may spoil the movie for them. Users can then choose to leave immediately, or tell the plug-in to refrain from blocking the page in the future.

The majority of user reviews are positive with some users relieved that they'll be able to use the Internet this week. Others feel that it does its job a little too well, blocking any page that even mentions Star Wars.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18.

In related news, a Star Wars featurette on the BB-8 droid was released today. And it was recently revealed that one of the actors in The Force Awakens was once fired from a video game.
