The No More Patty Chrome extension does exactly what the name implies; it changes all mentions of Patty to Paddy with St. Patrick's Day in mind.

The mention of St. Patty's Day can rile up some Irish people, but luckily there's a Chrome extension to help keep the blood pressure in check.

Chrome extensions are great for removing things you don't want to see from your social media timelines, from TV show spoilers to mentions of Kim Kardashian. Now, there's an extension, called No More Patty, that replaces Patty with Paddy wherever you might see it online. Hopefully you won't be reading too much where the word patty is actually relevant.

Expect to see the hashtag #PaddyNotPatty in the coming days as a subtle reminder to social media users that it's St. Paddy's Day if you are going to shorten St. Patrick's Day to anything. Of course, if you've installed the extension it could look quite different!
