Useful tool

Hide Feed does exactly what it says it will: hides the feed on sites you might frequent on the web. I’m using the free version on Twitter and it’s been a revelation. I can tweet, view notifications and DMs, or follow a link to a specific tweet without getting drawn in to the drama of the timeline or trending topics. And if I do find myself on the homepage instead of the feed I’m presented with a tranquil picture from Google Earth.
