Greasemonkey Script Quiets FriendFeed Beta Discussions

Sometimes, too much of a good thing can simply be too much. For some Webheads, the information firehose that is the new FriendFeed beta can be too much data coming too quickly – a constantly updating roller coaster. In my follow-up post, I suggested one way to help turn off the avalanche would be a simple toggle switch to not display comments and likes, showing only new entries. It’s a position Robert Scoble also mentioned when he and I talked about the beta the day before it officially launched.

Now, thanks to a Greasemonkey script authored by Matt Shaulis, you can take on the real-time feeds without being constantly updated with a barrage of updates as other FriendFeed users participate with comments and likes on the feed.

So if you’re a FireFox user, and a FriendFeed user, and run Greasemonkey, you can make the new beta a little quieter and a little more palatable, if the constant stream isn’t quite your thing.

To get started, start FireFox and head to:

Make sure your Greasemonkey is enabled.

The next time you start up the FriendFeed beta, you’ll see a busy feed has been significantly silenced. And of course, if you ever want to get back the core elements of FriendFeed that make it social, just turn it off.
