flickr fixr

Flickr is great but I am impatient, and strangely aggrieved that the page reloads on each new photo view. And I don't care about user comments, tags, etc., only looking at pictures.

I also needed an excuse to finally try out greasemonkey and lo and behold, flickr fixr is born. It feels a bit snappier than the current flickr photostream, but otherwise is a pretty modest first script (~6 lines of jQuery).

That's right, I was able to write jQuery thanks to Joan Piedra, which was a huge timesaver.

Anyway, try it out, see the difference: http://www.flickr.com/photos/floridapfe/2211054334/in/photostream/

That's awesome. The same things have always bothered me about Flickr... I have tremendous respect for flickr, and I love the way it looks, but it is irritating to use. Way to fix it yourself! :)
