Extension to quickly switch a deal page to its printable version

207 907 June 20, 2019 at 02:00 PM
When I browse deals and want to quickly scroll through the entire discussion thread, I've found myself often switching to the printable version. It allows you to see 200 posts per page and is free from clutter.

However, currently the steps to get to that view are somewhat inconvenient: from the main deal page you have to scroll down and find the View Forum Thread link, click on that and wait for the page to load, then click on the Thread Tools button, then click on the Show Printable Version button. So I wrote a little browser extension that takes you from the deal page to the printable discussion view in one click. I am currently using it on my machine, but I am wondering if other folks here would find it useful. If there is enough interest I can package it up and publish to Chrome and/or Firefox extension catalogs for the public to use.

Is this something that people here would find useful? If yes, please respond here and mention your preferred browser.

As a heads up, if you go to your settings there is an option for "Disable Classic Permadeal view." If you have this checked, clicking on a front page deal will take you direct to the forum thread and you can go to printable view from there.
