RIP away interweb pollution to compliment adblock Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I had to abandon transmographying extensions a few years back when my laptop ceased to be soooper fast. Now with new powerful workstations I have installed

* RIP
* YARIP
* HackTheWeb
* Platypus [slightly abandonware]
* stylish & scriptish
* element hiding helper
* karma blocker

But I miss platypus. It would be helpful if you had a comparison matrix of those to highlight the uniqueness of RIP's development in the last three years

:-)

Is there yet a subscription [repository] system planned for RIP? People capable of elegant code are more likely to create elegant RIPs for popular sites. AdBlock extensions did not become monumentally popular until the subscription system became prominent. With availability of free CoDeeN systems bandwidth cost should not be an issue. If not CDN I am confident some people would step forward to provide such hosting. ;)

thanks for all the RIPping good fish

Platypus

was the best interweb transmographier Rated 5 out of 5 stars

platypus allowed the less than savvy user to rearrange pages to one's own liking. Such power is typically reserved for UserScript authors fluent in XPath and related queries, or those with a CSS penchant (ala Stylish)

There exists a need for proponents of adblocking (AdBlock Edge, karma blocker) to collapse- or move elements. With AdBlock Edge (ethical tinkering adblock "plus") one can remove ads from a div but not collapse the div [to retain space in interweb email]

hopefully some brave, charitable soul will resume development of Platypus. Perhaps one that plays extremely well with privoxy functions?

Such a new platypus would do well to output for userscript (as is), but also pure CSS (into stylish) and some bits into AdBlock Edge.
