(CNN) — Donald Trump be gone.

A new Google Chrome add-on allows users to eliminate mentions and photos of the Republican presidential candidate online — essentially creating a Trump-free internet.

A description of the Trump Filter extension says it’s part of the “antidote” for Trump’s “toxic candidacy.”

The app launched on December 24 and was developed by Rob Spectre.

“I hope folks will take this opportunity to learn more about the wide field of candidates out there,” Spectre told CNNMoney.

He said he created the extension to take the spotlight off Trump and give concerned citizens the opportunity to actually focus on other candidates and learn about the issues.

“People are looking to turn him off,” Spectre said. With the Trump Filter they can.

The extension can be set to one of three levels of Trump filtration: mild, aggressive, and vindictive.

The extension comes preset on mild, which is still fairly strong — Donald Trump’s entire Twitter page goes blank. On the highest setting, vindictive, entire news sites are blocked — CNN, Google News and even InStyle go blank.

The app makes exceptions for the Google Chrome app store and the Trump Filter website to make the extension searchable and shareable.
