Excellent new Greasemonkey script for the Chrome Web browser (and Firefox)…

“Remove Facebook “like” buttons / iframes / widgets / shareboxes from other websites, along similar buttons from Google Plus, LinkedIn, Twitter, Sharethis, etc. Supports dynamic sites (AJAX, etc.) as well. Works in Chrome, too!”

After these buttons heavily slowed down my loading of several news stories at The Independent, I installed this automatic script. On revisiting the newspaper, all the buttons were gone.
