Greasmoney + Duggmirror

Don’t you hate it when you try to visit a digg story and the site has been dugg? Use the greasemonkey firefox plugin and this duggmirror greasemoney script to add three links to each digg entry – the duggmirror archive, Coral NYU Mirror, and the Google Cache of the page, all with a nice graphical interface. It’s easy too:

  1. Install Firefox (you mean you haven’t already?)
  2. Install Greasemonkey plugin
  3. Restart Firefox
  4. Visit the duggmirror script‘s page and click “install this script”. A little box will pop up at the top of the browser screen, asking you for permission to install it.

That’s it! When you visit digg – you will see the extra links next to the post title. It works in any OS that firefox support (I’ve personally tested on Windows XP, Vista, and Ubuntu).
