Sort and filter Metafilter comments by Favorites.
What is Filter MetaFilter?
Filter MetaFilter is a WebExtension for Firefox that allows you to sort or hide MetaFilter comments based on their number of favorites. With this add-on, you can quickly distill large threads down to the most popular comments, providing an easy overview of what comments received a lot of attention. It works on all MetaFilter subsites and can be used for sorting and filtering purposes. Simply open the extension, choose the desired sorting or filtering option, and the thread will be sorted or filtered accordingly.
This is a WebExtension for Firefox that allows you to sort or hide MetaFilter comments based on their number of favorites. This is not how the site was meant to be used, but it might help distill the largest threads down to the most popular comments for a quick overview of what comments got lots of attention. It's also an excuse for me to write a browser extension since I don't have any other ideas for extensions right now. It's a WebExtension so it will work on FireFox for Android.
- Open the extension.
