Destroy Entire Websites With Asteroids Bookmarklet

The Internet 65

An anonymous reader writes "Have you ever visited a website and been so frustrated by the content, layout, or adverts that you'd love to destroy it? Well, now you can. If you head on over to the erkie GitHub page there's a JavaScript bookmarklet you can drag and add to your bookmarks toolbar. Then just visit any website and click the bookmarklet. An Asteroids-style ship should appear that you can move around with the arrow keys. Press space and it will start firing bullets which destroy page content."

Fails in Chrome (1, Informative)

glasnt (1171735) | more than 3 years ago | (#33731596)

Chrome 6 (and maybe 5) don't allow bookmarks on any page other than the about:blank. So you can't really get a bookmark to click and make javascript happen on the page.

Re:Fails in Chrome (1, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#33731632)

I destroyed your post in Chrome 6.0.472.63 beta. If the bookmark bar is hidden, visit the New Tab page, right-click on its bookmark bar, and click Always show bookmarks bar.

Re:Fails in Chrome (2, Informative)

Buggz (1187173) | more than 3 years ago | (#33731650)

Or just press Ctrl-Shift-B.

Re:Fails in Chrome (1)

whoop (194) | more than 3 years ago | (#33733140)

The Shift isn't necessary. I often misplace the bookmarks bar, hitting Ctrl-B instead of Ctrl-V on Windows.

Re:Fails in Chrome (1)

Buggz (1187173) | more than 3 years ago | (#33733176)

Actually, Ctrl-B does nothing here. I currently use 7.0 dev but as far as I remember it was the same in chrome 6.

Re:Fails in Chrome (1)

glasnt (1171735) | more than 3 years ago | (#33742168)

Motherfudger. Yeah, I was always going Ctrl-B for bookmarks, but then that broke.

Re:Fails in Chrome (1)

whoop (194) | more than 3 years ago | (#33752782)

Ah, they may have changed it. I haven't done that accidentally in quite a while. I guess that's why.

Re:Fails in Chrome (1, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#33731704)

When you say something like "fails in chrome" don't you think it would be a good idea to have actually tried it? It works fine here in chrome 6.

Debris Belt (4, Funny)

kbob88 (951258) | more than 3 years ago | (#33731642)

Of course, pretty soon you've got millions of small pieces of web page debris orbiting your browser. Then your real, working web pages run a real risk of getting hit and destroyed by a piece of debris at over 20,000 mph, thus contributing even more to the debris belt. And when the Chinese start testing their anti-web-page rockets and making even more debris? Well, it's pretty much game over for the Intertubes at that point...

Firefox 3.6.10 (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#33731774)

Well, I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or what. It works on the script website, but nowhere else. Yes, I've enabled JS and tried disabling AdBlock-Plus and NoScript. When on /. it just opens to a page of JS script text. I really, *really* wanted to give it a go on Idle. :(

Alien vs AlienScientist.... ALIEN WINS (2, Interesting)

invient (1905274) | more than 3 years ago | (#33732160)

I just used the bookmark on alienscientist.com ..... and after annihilating his website with my awesome alien spaceship skillz ... the server upon refresh says the websites bandwidth has been exceeded .... Why would this happen? I thought this bookmark should only be client-side javascript... so the only reason I can think of that this would cause a drag on his bandwidth would be if he has ajax code that does some loading and if an element does not exist it tries to get it, but I keep destroying it?... maybe I am just the last person to access his site and it exceed his limit (seems to unlikely).... anyone have any ideas?

Re:Alien vs AlienScientist.... ALIEN WINS (1)

Perhaps not as creatively, but back in the *last* century there was an browser addon that allowed you to throw tomatoes, or blast an offending webpage with different weapons [rifle or shotgun IIRC].

You could even screen cap the results and post the mutilated page as well. It soon lost its novelty and waddled off into the dustbin of Idle history. I'm sure this one will as well.

I just wish I could remember who published it, or what it was called.

feh, spoiled brats. Got it all handed to you.

In the century before that one, we didn't even have a browser add on. All we had was View Source and a text editor. We had to edit the page's code by hand. And then, we couldn't shoot anything at the web page -- all we could do was throw rocks at our monitors. And THEN we had to edit the page's code from MEMORY. It was tough, but we were better for it.

I tell ya, you kids got it easy. Browser add ons and asteroids and hemeroids and enemas and NURSE! NURSE, WHERE'S MY SNACK? AND WHERE'S MY CAPS LOCK? oh there it is. Was I saying something?
