Script Summary: Edits to Gawker layout (including Kotaku, Gizmodo, Jezebel, Deadspin, io9, and Jalopnik) for better navigation
A few people have been frustrated with the latest update of the Gawker websites. This is an attempt to alleviate some of that frustration by moving a few things around.
The primary feature is hiding the navigation bar on the right side. This allows for the articles to stretch across the center of the page for easier reading. You can make this reappear by clicking the +/- link at the top of the page.
Also, I included links to each of the Gawker network sites at the top of the page for convenient site hopping.

-Blog view excepts weren't stretched across to the right side where the rightbar used to be due to a change in the site's layout. Added Fix

-The Gawker sites have this ad that covers the first article in blog view. After the ad goes away, clicking on the first article will send you to the ad site, rather than the article. I removed the "hidden panel" that causes this.

-The new right scroll bar was causing some issues. It's an invisible panel that might prevent you from being able to click on links. Everything should work fine with this fix.
-Noticed that I dated all my changes 2010. Finally realized we're 2011 now!!!

-Gawker changed the way their right bar worked. I changed the way the script hides/shows the right bar to boost performance of the web page with the script

-Next Post bar at the bottom wasn't removed on all screens. Provided workaround

-Removed "Next Post" bar at the bottom.

-Added common tags functionality to the script. You can add your own tags by adding 'myTag' to the list at the top of the script, separated by commas. I don't know common tags for all the websites, so please let me know what would be good defaults.
-Moved the +/- button to the right side so it sits above the Right Bar
- Added a toggle to change the behavior of the right bar. If you want it to float, change floatRightBar to true.
