Although it has some quirks such as some missing links, the new Facebook design works for me. One of the things I quite dig is the new homepage, showing me what’s going on in my friends circle. However, there’s a problem with that live-lifestream … some of the info contained (mainly those darn quizzes) is just irrelevant to me. Therefore I’ve knocked up a GreaseMonkey script which removes the quizzes from the Facebook homepage.
Installation is pretty straightforward:
- Install GreaseMonkey,
- Relaunch Firefox in case you haven’t after the install of GM,
- Install the script
From now on (until Facebook redesigns again that is) the quizzes (both current ones as future ones) won’t bother you anymore 🙂
If you want to block that rather new “Pick your five”-thing, add the code below on line 38 of the GM_BRAMUS.facebook.homepage.noquiz file:
forbiden_strings.push("What are yours?");
