The Chrome Extension that prevents bad Facebook etiquette

Inspired by an accidental 'like' of an ex's post on Facebook, Leon Thorne built a Chrome extension to prevent such travesties from happening again. The Chrome extension, "I don't 'like' my ex!", allows you to enter a list of the names of ex-significant others or people with whom you're on bad terms. When you navigate to Facebook, the extension will recurse through Facebook's DOM to look for posts with which they are associated. If it finds any such posts, it will delete the post's 'like' button. Check out the extension here: and the Github repository here:
