Note about breaking changes on twitch.tv
Twitch is infamous for changing their website without further notice, which may break this extension over night. Twitch also serves different canary builds (previews of potential future versions) to selected/random users for up to 4 weeks, which most likely break parts of the extension. If you notice pages no longer working properly, disable the extension, report the issue¹ (you can also send me an e-mail or DM me on Twitter) and wait for an update. Note that updates may take a few days to be approved on the corresponding browser stores. Keep an eye on the GitHub commits² or follow me on Twitter³ to receive news regarding new versions. Please avoid leaving a 1-star review as this will neither help the case nor increase my mood. Thank you. 🙂

Great utility for filtering out people, tags, and games that are so obnoxious you don't even want to see them or know they exist. Especially useful with Twitch's new tag-for-every-aspect-of-your-personality system.

However, recently I've found that manually entering things to exclude in the menu lists doesn't work as they don't save.

Twitch gave the greenlight for streamers to misuse tags so now this extension is essential. Their response to streamers misusing the VTuber tag:

We also do not feel Twitch should be the judge of Creators’ personal or creative identity, so we typically only enforce against the misuse of tags when it is associated with other behavior that violates our Community Guidelines such as hateful conduct or harassment.

This is a must for people who often visit Twitch and don't want to see some faces while browsing.
