The news site is one of the best instructive sites, to which you are leaded by the hyperlink on the web when you accessed the internet.

This add-on selects news topics and/or senders displayed in the main list on news sites (Yahoo!, Slashdot).

A user selects the text 'XXX' on the news list. Then articles whose title contains 'XXX' are displayed if he or she opens the context menu and clicks the menu item "Select 'XXX' as news topic". Its setting can be selected in the list of news selections on the toolbar if clicks "Save tab's news selection" in the same menu.

And unfavorite words are not displayed on Yahoo! and Slashdot by the filtering. But this add-on never exclude any advertising or sponsored link so always retained.

A filtering target for words is created in the option page. Usually, news topics including one of those words separated by commas are shown or hidden by 'Accept' or 'Drop' target. If a filtering block and "Exclude Words" option is used, it is possible to show or hide news topics including all words of filtering targets. Filtering categories are only "ALL" but the user will be able to add it oneself in later versions.

Let's make good use of your time without boring topics by this add-on.
