We've seen apps like this before, but the fact that a condom company is behind this one kicks up the fun factor a little bit. The condom brand Skyn just launched a new Chrome extension that blocks you from seeing your friends' endless string of baby photos on Facebook.

It's called "The Baby Blocker" and it uses Facebook's analytics to identify photos of babies and toddlers. Then it covers them up with photos of things like food, cars, and sporting events. So it seems like it's geared more towards men than women.

You can download it for free. Just search for "The Baby Blocker" on the Chrome Web Store.
