Some torrent sites like to use your browser to Javascript mine crypto currencies in stead of showing ads.

But there are those that wanna block crypto-currency mining from their browser.

In Google Chrome use: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/minerblock/emikbbbebcdfohonlaifafnoanocnebl
This is a miner-blocker developed by Ismail Belkacim: https://twitter.com/xd4rker/status/909494724070969344

Do you think monero mining is a good initiative or do you fear abuse by malcreants?
