Miley Cyrus performs during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards at the Barclays Center on Aug. 25, 2013 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

We know just as well as you do that it’s pretty hard to avoid Miley Cyrus these days. Ever since she made headlines with a controversial performance a few weeks ago at the MTV Video Music Awards, it seems like everyone has to have an opinion about her — and wants to spend lots of time sharing said opinion.

Now, some relief for pop-culture consumers who are experiencing symptoms of extreme Miley Fatigue.

Yesterday, as Digital Spy points out, a Google Chrome browser extension launched under the name “No Cyrus.” Chrome users simply install the extension and it will use hashtag symbols to block out every single online mention of the following phrases:

  • Miley Cyrus
  • Miley Ray Cyrus
  • Twerk / Twerking
  • MileyCyrus
  • Wrecking Ball

The extension also nixes Kardashian references, just for good measure.

It’s not the first time someone has had an idea like this — Britain’s The Guardian allowed users to filter out royal baby news in July, and there’s also an extension that changes every photo online to a picture of Ryan Gosling — but it’s a shining example of the technology.

So far, every single review for the program is five stars, with glowing recommendations like “This is what the internet needs!” and “one small step for mankind.” (Pro tip: the No Cyrus extension doesn’t change photos, so hardcore anti-Miley folks might want to double up with Gosling.)

Here’s what it looks like when you look for Miley on our site — for who among us is not guilty? — with the extension installed:

The new album from Miley Cyrus — sorry, make that #### #### — is out Oct. 4, 2013.
