Reload The Love!

By bengrosser Last update Mar 11, 2012 — Installed 7,184 times.

Script Summary: Artificially and temporarily inflates your Facebook notification numbers when they are really zero.



Reload The Love! automatically detects when your Facebook notifications are at 0 and artificially inflates them for you.

If new notifications arrive after Reload The Love! has inflated them, the icon counts will instantly revert back to accurate values. And any time you want to reinflate them, just reload the page to Reload The Love!

Tested on Firefox (using Greasemonkey), Chrome (native support), and Safari (using the NinjaKit Safari Extension). All testing done on Mac OS X. If you're using Firefox or Safari and don't have Greasemonkey or NinjaKit installed, you'll need them first before clicking 'install' above.

Installation Instructions

For Firefox:
---------
Firefox doesn't support userscripts by default, so you'll need to download the Greasemonkey addon:

1. Visit the Greasemonkey Page and select 'Add to Firefox'.
2. Select 'Install Now'
3. Click the 'Install' button in the top right of this page
4. Click 'Install' when it appears in the dialog box
5. Visit Facebook, login (if needed), and Refresh/Reload the page

To disable, find the new Greasemonkey icon in the toolbar, click it and select the checked 'Enable' to uncheck it.

For Google Chrome:
---------------
Chrome supports userscripts but the installation process is a bit cumbersome.

1. Right click and 'Save Link As...' this file: reloadthelove.user.js
2. Go to Window->Extensions in Chrome
3. Find the file you downloaded and drag it onto the newly opened Extensions tab in Chrome
4. Click 'Add' when prompted.
5. Visit Facebook, login (if needed), and Refresh/Reload the page

To disable, go to Window->Extensions and either 'Uninstall' or 'Disable' Reload the Love!

For Apple Safari (on Mac OS X):
------------------------
Safari doesn't support userscripts by default, so we use a Safari Extension called NinjaKit.

1. Download NinkjaKit.
2. Find the file you just downloaded in the Finder and double-click it. It will ask if you want to install the extension. Say yes.
3. Click the 'Install' button in the top right of this page.
4. Click 'Install' when it appears on the dialog box.
5. Visit Facebook, login (if needed), and Refresh/Reload the page

To disable, go to the menu Safari->Preferences, select Extensions, then disable NinjaKit
