I could live with the ads on Facebook when they stayed on the sidebar, but now that they’re inserting them everywhere in the site, I’ve had enough.
Enter this Greasemonkey script. For those of you not familiar with it, Greasemonkey allows you to use scripts to modify the web pages you view on the fly. Fortunately for you and I, but unfortunately for advertisers and other people doing annoying things on the net, your browser is the final arbiter of what you see. By controlling directly how your browser displays pages, it’s possible to remove annoyances from your awareness. Greasemonkey makes this easy to do in Firefox.
Today, after I decided I’d had it with the Facebook ads, I just searched for “greasemonkey facebook ads”. The script works splendidly. Yet another win for Firefox.
