Skip “Next Links” with the PageZipper Bookmarklet

No matter what browser you use sooner or later you will run across a website with an endless number of “next links” used for the sole purpose of generating page views. Now you can simply scroll through those articles without the “next links” using the PageZipper Bookmarklet.

The Problem

Here is a perfect example of a page view generating article. As you can see our browser is in a non-maximized state and the first part of the article takes up very little room in the browser window. Absolutely horrible…

    I have been using AutoPager (FF extension) for a long time now. It does the same as PageZipper. However, I’m going to give PZ a try.

    If you’re a greasemonkey junkie ;) like me, then this userscript will do the job. http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/27251
    It’s mapped to the left and right arrow, so on sites with sequential pages just press right arrow to go to next page and vice versa. The script was done by a Chinese, thus some chinese character. You can map it to any key you like if you know how ;)

    I’m a big fan of Auto Pager (the Firefox Extension). I’ve used the Adblock Plus Element Hiding Helper to remove all traces of Auto Pager even working. I love it, the pages just scroll all the way through absolutely seamlessly! =D

    Whichever automatic page loader you choose, I recommend Yet Another Smooth Scrolling for Firefox. It makes navigating very long pages a pleasure.
