Some days back, a slight change happened at Flickr. A small Yahoo logo was added to the Flickr logo so that it reads Flickr from Yahoo!. We say, it’s fine if Yahoo wants to remind people of that fact that it owns the largest photo community on the web; we are absolutely cool with it. But the fundamental fact here is that as techcrunch puts it – Flickr users, many of whom are techy hipsters, just don’t mix well with middle America Yahoo.
The change was met with a lot of criticism. People thronged to Flickr’s forums and tweeted how being owned by Yahoo is something to be ashamed of. Ultimately, it’s the company’s sole decision to select the way they wish to brand their products. If the Yahoo branding looks hip on your screen, that’s great; if not, let’s get a greasemonkey to do the job.
Flickr user, aspherical element, must be really troubled with Yahoo intervening his place of tranquility. He picked up the task of creating a greasemonkey script that scrapes off the yahoo branding and brings back the original logo. If you follow the same league, get the Greasemonkey script here. As a necessary rule, you’ll need Firefox and the Greasemonkey addon installed (Or Google Chrome if you’re geeky enough to enable scripts)
