Some pages like to add various redirects to links. And when you click on such a link, you are forced to first visit all intermediate pages and only then get where you needed to initially.
Skip Redirect for Chrome and Firefox will help you skip such redirects when clicking on links and open the landing page right away.
The extension has a number of settings that will help you specify how to correctly process links. For example, you can create your own lists of skipped and non-skipped links and specify the parameters for skipping them.
The settings themselves can be synchronized between browsers on different devices.
By default, Skip Redirect checks all links, except for non-skipped ones, and only processes them.
