Informed Comment xSidebars

Update: this Greasemonkey script does not support Firefox 1.5. I have no plans to update it, because the Remove It Permanently Firefox extension can do effectively the same thing, only easier.

Informed Comment xSidebars is a script for Greasemonkey, which is a very useful Firefox extension that allows you to run javascripts on a per-site basis. One purpose for doing this is to remove content you don't like. Similar to my Linux Today Butler script, this one entirely removes the right sidebars from the Informed Comment website.

Note that this removes some functionality from the site: there are no ads, no links to the archives, RSS feed, etc. If you want that functionality, then you don't want this script.

Here is a before and after shot, showing the effect of the script.

Script is here.

You'll need Firefox and the Greasemonkey extension to make use of it. Once you have them installed, just click the Linux Today Butler link, and when the script is showing, select Tools/Install User Scripts, No need to restart Firefox, just visit (or refresh) the Linux Today page.
