Fighting Fire with Fire

A week ago I wrote that [Google was showing signs of evil].

They haven’t changed their stance on AutoLink, which isn’t super suprising. However, they HAVE upset enough crazy developers to force them to take a taste of their own medicine.

Mark Pilgrim wrote a ScobleFucker script which runs in Mozilla Firefox (in conjunction with the GreaseMonkey plugin) that removes anything that isn’t a link on pages Scoble has published.

He also wrote Butler which removes all Google ads, and places a nice ‘try your search with…’ at the top.

I don’t think I’ll keep using ScobleFucker – but this Butler script is awesome.
