B♭ UX FilterAbout

Brian's flat user experience web filter is like Ad Block Plus for the entire internet. I have long been a proponent of reducing internet pollution by filtering advertisements. B♭ web filter takes the attention adverting non-sense a step further by removing everything except the most important information.

For years I tried to download and share media in a user friendly way. I couldn't possibly download everything on the internet. And I couldn't show everything I wanted to in a friendly way. Now I have a solution that is the best of both problems. Display the content where it is lies, and create a platform for adding new contributed user friendly experiences. This should make a great internet kiosk.

The long term goal is to covert 90% of the popular web with a user experience that is responsive, convenient, and distraction free. This is not meant to be a replacement for the web, instead a quick glance at a site's content without all the distractions.

Eventually, I would like to provide a repository of expressions that extract the important information for every site on the internet. This is an ambitious goal, but you can help by typing in an address below. If the side has already been filtered, the important information will be shown. If no information can be displayed, you can help pick it out by selecting the show original content button.

Content can then be highlighted or manipulated in succession to find only the most important information to feed your brain. Content should be as flat as possible, only one to two levels deep of HTML, no borders or framing, content flows from one side of the window to the other. Content should be adjustable for any screen size preference. Few primary colors that wont detract from more interesting images or videos.
