Less IMDB Safari Extension

If you spend as much time as I do on IMDB, you may find yourself annoyed that their interface has gotten more and more convoluted with unrelated and useless information. What used to be a streamlined interface is now mucked up with ads, Flash trailers, and just plain garbage that makes the site a lot less pleasurable to use (ed. note: this is just my opinion, you may totally love that stuff).

Needless to say (even though I’m going to say it anyway), I was THRILLED when I came across this post on John Gruber’s DaringFireball today. I’d never heard of Quoteunquoteapps.com before, but their Less IMDB Safari extension is a godsend. It gets rid of nearly all of the garbage and delivers the streamlined UI that’s as close to how it used to be as possible.

If you use Safari and haven’t check out this extension, do yourself a favor and go there now. They’ve got a nice little image that shows you a “before and after” of what IMDB looks like with and without the extension installed.
