BP Does Your Browser Like It Did the Gulf

Maybe you want to protest BP. Maybe you're just sick of hearing about them. Either way, you can now block all mention of British Petroleum from your internets with a Firefox plug-in... and replace them with mini oil spills.

The Oil Spill plug-in effect is similar to what we saw a few weeks ago with Shaved Bieber—which gets rid of all Justin Bieber references, rending Twitter basically impotent—with an added twist: the oil slick that replaces any BP-related text actually drips down your screen.

An effective form of protest? Maybe not. A little on the nose? Sure. But it's a steady reminder of just how bad a shape we're in. And the longer this plays out, the more we'll need one. [Oil Spill]
