Userscript: Byline Strike

Today, Toronto Star reporters left their names off their stories to protest newly hired digital journalists getting paid less than print ones. But, as Steve Ladurantaye notes, the bylines are only missing from the paper version. So I quickly whipped up a script that will remove bylines from the Toronto Star website, too.

How to Install Userscripts

  • Firefox: Install the Greasemonkey extension. After that, clicking the link to the script should prompt you to add it.
  • Chrome: Install the Tampermonkey extension. After that, clicking the link to the script should prompt you to add it. You can also install it without Tampermonkey by saving the script to your computer, going to your extensions page, and dragging and dropping the file into the Chrome window.
  • Mobile: You’re mostly SOL, but you can try the Tampermonkey app.
