Bookmarklet to Remove HTML Elements

Sep0509Sep 05, 09

I created this extremely simple bookmarklet a while ago in order to access the content of a hastily locked down website. A number of poorly designed websites try to make their visitors register by placing semi-transparent overlays on top of the entire site until you fill out their data mining forms and agree to the sketchy Terms of Service.

The problem with this is, they've just sent the entire document to that visitor's browser and then - literally - put a mask on it. So, the solution is extremely simple: I created a JavaScript bookmarklet that lets you click on any HTML element to completely remove it from a page (overlays included, even Flash).

An important note: Since you don't want to keep removing random pieces of a page, because you're probably going to remove what you're trying to read. This bookmarklet is a toggle - click it to turn click-to-remove on, then click it again to turn click-to-remove off ... Repeat as necessary.

Drag the link below into your Bookmarks Toolbar (if you have it visible), or right-click it and bookmark it somewhere convenient.

Happy reading!
