First there was Jon Hicks’ Helvetireader, then Ad Taylor’s Helvetical, now there’s JosFrichter’s Helvetwitter. A complete revamp of Twitter.com, using userscripts, removing virtually every element from the sidebar to the top navigation. All you get is the Twitter stream, and text field. Gorgeous, although I would love to see avatars in there.
Before installing, Jose notes the following:
- During reload, you may see the original ugly Twitter css for a second.
- Twitter’s css files are far from being clean and easy to understand. Thus my css based on them are far from perfect too. Although I have not encountered problems during 1 month of using it, there may be some.
- I have not tested anything but the very basic Twitter functionality.
