Google Chrome script to clean up the UI of Pinboard.in

Pinboard.in is a great minimalist bookmarking service.  I moved to Pinboard at the start of the year and have never looked back to Delicious.

One issue i have with pinboard though is that in the bookmark listing, minimal though it is is still to bulky and padded out.

I’ve uploaded to userscripts.org a Chrome user script / Firefox greasemonkey script to clean up the UI of Pinboard.in

Refer

Removed sections of the Pinboard UI

  • star
  • when

Changed

  • background of private bookmarksed changed to white - like a normal bookmark
  • Padding and margins removed from each bookmark
