Many of the posts to the Official Samsung PNxxF8500 Series Discussion Thread [No Street Price Talk] are very long because they included a number of pictures. Also, some members do not take the time to snip posts that they quote. So, I created an AVS Forum browsing tool that shortens long forum pages without loss of content, making them much easier to browse. This is especially important when you join a large thread and try to catch up.
For IE users I have created and Context Menu Extensions to snip long posts and quotes. For Firefox and Firefox for Android users I have created an extension with a Content Script. For Firefox only there are also Context and Widget Extensions, not currently supported by Firefox for Android. A Chrome Content Extension beta is available. All of the above also have a browser extension to filter posts shown making finding old posts easier.
Below is a side by side comparison of two unsnipped and snipped posts with the default maximum page and quote heights.
The largest scrollable page display savings that I have found is 14'10.6". Shown with the Firefox snipping extension below :
Using the snipping extension with Firefox for Android the page height saved by scrollable posts and quotes for the same pages as above would be 29893 pixel rows.
At DPI / PPI for Samsung Galaxy 2 7.0 tablet of 170 PPI, that converts to 14'7.5", using the maximum scrollable height for pages of 350 and quotes 150.
The IE, Firefox, Firefox for Android, Chrome, and Opera versions of this tool are different, because of the restrictions and features of each browser.
All of these can be installed in any combination.If you have ANY problem downloading or with the downloaded file then just PM me your email address and I will send you the file as an email attachment.
The tool contains a Firefox Content script and IE Context Menu Extensions that have been tested on Win XP, VISTA, and Win 8 Pro x64. There are no executables.
