Experts Exchange Junk Remover

12 Giu/10

Experts-Exchange.com is a highly controversial website which can be largely attributed to their deceptive layout which tries to trick users into believing that they can only view the answers to questions posted on the site if they signup for it.

Most users do not know that the site displays different content depending on the origin of the user. A user entering an experts exchange url directly will see the trial offer, someone following a link from a search engine like Google or Bing will be led to a slightly different page.

That page has the answers and solutions at the very bottom of the page. Experts Exchange do their best to hide the fact that the answers are on the page by displaying a huge category listing between the question and answers.

A signup to view the solution is displayed prominently beneath the question on each page.

The Experts Exchange userscript removes the junk from their pages. It basically removes the signup request, the fake comment boxes and the directory from the website so that only the question and answers remain.

The script has a few limitations. It is advised to visit Experts Exchange from Google or another search engine since they display the results and the answers on those pages most of the time.

The best way to handle this is to search for the title in Google and enclose it with “”. This should display the page of the Experts-Exchange site in the results.

The script is not working properly on some pages even if the site is visited from Google. It is likely that the developer will add support for those pages at a later time. Some pages at Experts Exchange seem to hide the answers completely. The script won’t be able to help in this case then.

Experts Exchange can be downloaded from the userscripts resource site. It is fully compatible with the Firefox web browser and likely to work in Google Chrome and other userscript compatible browsers as well.
