Greasemonkey Scripts

I wrote a couple of trivial Greasemonkey scripts for my use and I thought they’d be useful for some of you too.

The first is for Rediff. On Rediff, the Headlines tab contains perhaps two lines of news and the rest is devoted to tabloid stuff. So I wrote a script which’ll automatically switch to the News tab when the page loads. Install: Rediff News First.

The second script is for Indian Express. Regular readers will know that the Indian Express story pages are just plain horrible. They are full of flash gimmicks and other doo-dads. To make matters worse, they even sneak in a pop-under ad from time to time. To get rid of all that, I wrote a script which simply redirects to the printer friendly version of a story. Install: Indian Express Printer Friendly.
