If You Can Read This, You Don't Have The 'Star Wars' Spoiler-Blocker
If you haven't seen "The Force Awakens," you can search the Internet spoiler-free with Force Block, a new extension for Google's Chrome browser.
Welcome to "Star Wars VII" premiere week.
If you're not willing (or able) to wait in line Thursday night to see "The Force Awakens," you risk seeing spoilers. (Video via WTTG)

Priceless Misc developed the extension because "spoilers hurt."
The blocker "uses smart-pattern detection to analyze the Web pages you visit, running the content through a database of Star Wars terms."
If it picks up too many terms, you'll see this.
If you're confident that what you're trying to visit is spoiler-free, you can also whitelist a page.
But use social media wisely you must — because some people are blabbermouths. (Video via Walt Disney Studios)
