waves at all the shiny new people
Hi, Internet! I must admit, I am sort of stunned at the response to this post. I thought if the lists annoyed me, there must be a few others out there who agreed. A few. That's my understatement for the decade. Thanks to all of you for the tweets, retweets, kind words - being called 'awesome sauce' isn't bad for the ego - and general sharing of this tweak. I'm doubly pleased because I love whipping stupid applications into line, it's sort of a hobby of mine.
For those of you who are new, here are a few highlights: simple, flaky biscuit recipe (#1 on Google!), a no-cook ice cream recipe (yes, with eggs)), and one of my favorites, Dear PETA, women are animals too... I also have a brand new site, Not Like Normal People, that you might want to check out. Oh yeah, see that ad on the top of the sidebars? Apparently I wrote a cookbook, too. (Much as I love sharing the tweaks, this self-promotional stuff is killing me but a friend sent mail and threatened to hack my site and do this if I didn't do it myself.)
Thanks again for coming by to snag the browser tweaks, I'm really, really happy to share!
Do you hate those recommendations from twitter as much as I do? Rhetorical question, I know. It seems to be the new thing to hate - and with good reason this time. It just recommended I follow someone who blocked me when I wrote Cook's Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knife Roll. Last straw, much?
I decided there must be a way to kill the suckers. You know what? There is a reason they call me Application Goddess. Done in 12 minutes. Take that, twitter.
Want to know how? Here you go, in all my technical author, bullet listed, click-on-sh*t glory. Scroll down for Internet Explorer, Chromium, Chrome, Safari (yes on Macs, too) and Opera! Oddly, the div ma,es didn't always work exactly the same in the different browsers, so if you find something that isn't quite right, please let me know.
