Reddit Lightbox

Script Summary: Load images or comments in an overlayed lightbox, never leave Reddit again! Updated 9/29/2011.



Version: 1.1

Any link that goes directly to a jpg, gif, png, or bmp image will open in a lightbox overlay within the current Reddit window. No more opening and closing tabs or clicking back ad nauseam. This first world problem is solved!

As a bonus, imgur links which don't point directly to the image file are redirected to do so. Which enables the overlay to work with the majority of imgur links.

Usage:
Click on the link (or thumbnail) to open the overlay.
Click anywhere on the overlay to close it.

Tested functional in the current stable builds of Firefox and Chrome.

Changelog
9/29/11
* Added the ability to load the comments in a lightbox, just click the [F] next to the comments link. Note that the comments link itself is unaffected and will still work as it always has.
* General code cleanup.
