I’m on MySpace! Get me out of here!

By Mark O’Neill

Sometimes I accidently fall into the awful trap that is MySpace and I don’t know exactly how it happens. I’m clicking around looking for some porn educational websites and suddenly I find myself on somebody’s MySpace page with Mariah Carey’s music blaring out at me from my PC speakers. Too dazed and traumatised to act, I have to be dragged out of there by my girlfriend who shuts down the page and takes me to the Teletubbies website instead.

So that’s why this Firefox extension is an absolute peach.¬†Everytime you land on a MySpace page, a big warning sign will jump in and ask you if you want to go back to the previous page.

Being serious for a moment, it’s only just a big joke.¬†If you know anyone who’s a big obsessive MySpace user, you can install this extension on their Firefox profile and listen to them scream everytime they check out their profile.

Who says you need to wait until April 1st to have fun?

  1. I have friends who refuse to use social networks other than MySpace. I've found a few Greasemonkey scripts in Firefox and MySpace is a much more tolerable place. They are: Automatic MySpace Media Remover, Myspace Annoyance Removal, Myspace – Custom Layout Dis/Enable. Plus, I also add any of those add-on MP3 players to my AdBlock blocked list.

    • Yeah, there are quite a few great greasemonkey scripts to cut off the crap out of myspace.. but even then.. I wouldn't even touch the darn service with a 200 feet pole :)
