Introducing Daily Snooze
April 28, 2014
I have long thought the vast majority of comments on websites, particularly mainstream news sites, to be pointless, often offensive, drivel. Last week while perusing an article on the New York Daily News website I was, as usual, inundated with a string of ridiculous comments at the bottom of the page. This being the proverbial “final straw,” I decided to create a Safari Extension to hide all comments from this site. I have dubbed this project Daily Snooze.
The following is an example of what an article on the site normally looks like:
The end result looks nice and clean, the way a news article ought to be displayed:
As an additional bonus, I have taken the liberty of substituting the ugly Arial font wherever possible with Helvetica Neue.
The extension is free and in the public domain. You can grab it here.
