Remove Dupes from Google Reader using Greasemonkey

May 30, 2008

Google Reader


I find it annoying to see the same stories duplicated in my Google Reader, especially now that I subscribe to many popular/recommended feeds (RSSmeme,, TwitBuzz, Twitt(url)y, ReadBurner, Hacker News) along with my regular feeds.

So, I started a Remove Dupes from Google Reader greasemonkey script back in February. Greasemonkey is a Firefox addon that allows you to customize the way a webpage displays using small bits of JavaScript.

I just updated it to version 0.2 today with a couple of changes:

  • moved Remove Dupes button next to the Refresh button
  • dupes: mark as read, but no longer hides them (fix keyboard j,k bug)
  • finds more dupes by splitting symbols (-, |) this is really helpful if you subscribe to Twitt(url)y
  • more helpful firebug console output (ie. # dupes removed)

You can install this script from

My other greasemonkey script is for adding ratings to the RedBox website.

Let me know what you think!
