Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

Ladies and Gentleman, Gawker's Nemesis

A developer and cynic wrote a Chrome plugin that does text substitutions on clickbait headlines on websites. It killjoys the hype giving the users headlines that are more reasonable if jaundiced. Having seen some similar stuff done with Grease Monkey in Firefox, in this case to remove the barbaric travesties of "chat-speak," I guess this developer should find it pretty easy to port this to Firefox.

(Thanks and a hat tip to a friend on Facebook for pointing me to this.)
