Firebug & jQuery – making other people’s sites better

Was just on a website that had 80 checkboxes (all checked) for various options. I wanted to have only one checked. There’s no ‘Uncheck all’ button. Design Fail! But – open the firebug console and run


Bing, all unchecked. I get a childlike sense of wonder and joy from that, still. If only more things in life could be improved with a little console activity.

jQuery(“#pub.crap”).attr(“ale-count”, 20)
