Filter Your FriendFeed Services Via Greasemonkey

Eric (engtech) of Internet Duct Tape has released a great FriendFeed hack that any user of the social aggregator FriendFeed has been dying to see! All you need is Firefox and the Greasemonkey extension installed.

Essentially, the script will install a bar at the top of FriendFeed so that you can filter items based on one of the 20+ services available on FriendFeed by simply clicking one of the icons (See screenshots below).

  • It remembers the context you’re in.
    • If you’re browsing within friends, then clicking on the icons will filter by that service on your friends.
    • If you’re browsing within a specific user, then clicking on the icons will filter by that service on that person.
    • If you’re browsing the public timeline, then clicking on the icons will filter by that service for the public timeline.
  • It returns 100 results per page instead of 30.
  • It will automatically update itself if I update the script.

If this isn’t the best thing since sliced bread and FriendFeed, I don’t know what is! Thank you Eric for this wonderfully brilliant script, and yes, I installed Greasemonkey just for this script! ;)
