Script Summary: Improved user interface, search function, removal of junk, addition of quidco and topcashback links www.hotukdeals.com
You can use the script without installing via this proxy service. http://www.fukd3.betterinternet.me
(the proxy is operated by a 3rd party that is nothing to do with me)
just for fun and to make things easier. completely unofficial.
The script is written and tested on firefox and greasemonkey.
It also supports Google Chrome and tampermonkey.
The code is written in clearly defined blocks and so it should be possible even for a beginner to delete the bits they do not want or are no longer working.
