LegitReviews in Widescreen!!!

Post by DMB2000uk » Mon Apr 06, 2009 6:19 pm

Do you have a fancy widescreen monitor?

Do you use firefox?

Are you upset at the wasted screen real-estate LR's main page column layout gives you?

Then you need our all new and improved GreaseMonkey script widescreen hack!!11!one!!1

[/infomercial]


Ever since the main site got redesigned with it's new 'column' style layout I've had a css hack in place to make it widescreen again. But it didn't reflow if you changed the width of your browser.

Since mid-january I worked out how to re-write the css so that it would reflow with the width of your browser.

I'm afraid I didn't share this with you all (to be honest I enabled it and forgot about it!)

But now thanks to Kyle, this awesome hack has been implemented into a greasemonkey script, so you too can join in with the widescreen goodness. Even if you are only running on a square 1280x1204 monitor, it is still a good improvement to the site's aesthetics so is worth a try.

You can find firefox here
You can get greasemonkey here

To install the widescreen hack, simply install this greasmonkey script


Enjoy :)
