This Anti-Upworthy Plugin Could Change Your Life

The other day I experimented with an upworthy headline just because I never wrote one. Immediately we received comments from a few people who said they stopped reading other sites for using those clickbait style headlines. If you ever have that problem, then you should check out Downworthy, a new Chrome plugin that converts these ridiculous headlines into more realistic (AKA snarky and funny) versions. A few of the great substitutions include:

  • "Literally" becomes "Figuratively"
  • "Will Blow Your Mind" becomes "Might Perhaps Mildly Entertain You For a Moment"
  •  "Can't Even Handle" becomes "Can Totally Handle Without Any Significant Issue"
  • "Incredible" becomes "Painfully Ordinary"
  • "You Won't Believe" becomes "In All Likelihood, You'll Believe"
