The popular "Stylish" browser extension, which allows you to download custom styles for a given site (such as making text more readable, removing UI cruft, or adding a professional white background), has been silently logging its users web activity for the last year and a half. The new owners of the add-on at the time, SimilarWeb, offer products including “Market Solutions To See All Your Competitors’ Traffic.” [more inside]
I've been following the most recent last primary US election post and the Brexit post in my recent activity. However, trying to load these threads (even on my laptop - I don't even bother on my phone) in full is very difficult. Are there Chrome plugins out there that will allow me to truncate or modify these threads in some way to make the page load faster?
Now that the site is partly crowdfunded, would it make sense to also draw on the software development skills in the community to help develop new functionality? What would it take to have that be possible? [more inside]
I often read threads without commenting and thus they don't show up in recent activity. Is there a greasemonkey/firefox plugin that can show me which threads I have read and record my place in them - other than opening history up every time?
Hey Matt and pb: You know that sweet-ass bit of code you guys have that scrubs any link to Amazon and inserts your affiliate ID? It would totally rock if you would release a version of that as a Wordpress plugin. [more inside]
Are there any programmers out there who would be interested in making a MetaFilthy clone/replacement for Firefox 2.0? [more inside]
Is there a hack/script/firefox plugin that will allow me to open all links in a metafilter post, sequentially and in tabs, followed by the comments, after right clicking "comments" on a MeFi thread?
The current firefox search plugins for Mefi were written ages ago for the built-in site search (hence they don't work anymore). Can any of our hotshot code cowboy members look into making one that uses the yahoo search? I'm particularly looking for one to search AskMe.
I've written MetaDash, a Dashboard plug-in that is an RSS reader for MetaFilter and Ask MetaFilter. I'd like to ask Mac OS X 10.4 users for your comments and suggestions for improvement...
I'm considering writing a Firefox extension for Metafilter. Would anyone use it? [+]
Fark FireFox plugin - So uhhh... at the risk of calling down all the wrath of hellfire, is there a use for something similar for metafilter?
Sorry no link. In a discussion a couple of months ago there was mention of a winamp plugin that would recommend music based on the tracks that you were listening to. I can't find the thread that mentioned this or anything on google. Does anyone remember this? Can anyone post a link?
Theoretical brainstorming and talking-out-loud regarding Matt's Meta technology.
