Developers attempt to remove Justin Bieber from Internet

Considering the endless amount of fun we have following the Biebs’ exploits on the Web, we’re not sure why anyone would want to remove him from it, but that’s just what an application from Free Art and Technology is attempting to do.

The New York–based developers have created a Firefox add-on called Shaved Bieber (get it?!) that blocks photos of Justin Bieber and any mention of the popster’s name. “We’ve developed a series of innovative tools to help cover the lower regions of Web pages from unwanted Justin Bieber content,” creator Greg Leuch wrote on the company site. “Shave away those Bieber mentions on Web sites with our bookmarklet, Firefox add-on or JavaScript files.” No, thank you.
