In the presentation, I refer to a bookmarklet that you can use to introduce jQuery into a web page. Drag these bookmarklets to your Bookmark toolbar to use them.
- » jQuerify « – Introduce jQuery into any web page.
- » Fix Digg « – The final bookmarklet that we made to remove all buried comments from a Digg post.

If you enjoyed this screencast, don’t forget to Digg it up!
Update: If you wish to use Greasemonkey instead of a bookmarklet, then by all means, please do so. You can use the ability to quickly analyze and inspect a page that Firebug and jQuery affords you, using the results to build a Greasemonkey script, instead of a simple bookmarklet. I only really intended this to be a quick introduction to the subject, so please feel free to explore it more!
More Tips: Here are some more jQuery selectors that you can use on a Digg Post:
- $("li.c-bury > div").remove(); – Remove all buried comments, but none of the direct replies.
- $("div.c-body").show(); – Show all comments, even ones that’ve been buried.
