Like everyone else who has tried it, I really do not like slashdot beta. Deep comments are unreadable, which completely breaks the whole point of slashdot.
Thanks for the feedback, here's a chrome/chromium extension to make slashdot beta less intolerable. You will need to load this from tools/extensions as I can't be bothered to figure out how to stick this on chrome store yet.
The code is simple as heck, if you prefer, use the bookmarklet
Beta still has issues, but this will do as a starting point. If people link to this page, I'll take the next step and try and stick it on the chrome web store.
