Steam DRM Alert

Script Summary: Warns you when Steam's game description mentions DRM

I've been bitten a few times by seeing a good deal on an interesting looking game on Steam, buying it, and then finding out that it had additional DRM above and beyond Steam's own. At best, I end up supporting a practice I find morally untenable, and at worst I do that AND end up with a game I can't or am not willing to install.

This user script will search through every page and, if it finds the words "3rd Party DRM" or "Games for Windows - Live", it will place a bright red warning near the purchase buttons so you can make a more informed decision. It will also highlight the text it found in their original places in the page.
