TrackerZapper is a Mac app that sits in your menubar and automatically removes tracking parameters from any links you copy.

Cool idea.

I don’t mind that people use UTM parameters in links, or any other URL param gobbldygook they deem important. I don’t mind seeing them in the browser URL bar, even. But I often have URL’s on my clipboard because I’m about to paste them to share them somewhere (Slack, Discord, or iMessage) and I don’t care to pass them along there generally (it would be bad data anyway probably). I especially don’t care to have those present in links that I put in blog posts. So this just silently rips them off.

So: language: JavaScript (javascript)

Becomes: language: JavaScript (javascript)
