Stopping Hotmail redirects to MSN webpage
« on: July 06, 2018, 06:13:46 pm »
OK, I hate when I log out of my Hotmail email web page, that it will redirect me to the MSN web page. GRRR!!!

With my Opera browser, I used the Extension, ViolentMonkey, that would automatically prevent this redirect and allow me to use my choice of web site, to redirect, to.

It appears with the latest version of the Linux Opera browser (version 54), that the ViolentMonkey Extension is no longer available.

I have found an alternative Opera Extension, named TamperMonkey.

I paste the same Script, in this Extension, that I used for ViolentMonkey and it works well at preventing the Hotmail redirect to the MSN webpage.

window.location = 'https://news.google.ca';

//tip:
//if you want a blank page use 'about:blank' instead of 'http://www.hotmail.com/'

Cool trick.

You really got a hate on for MSN, huh? ;-) I find it quaint. It's like the Netscape Navigator of the portal world, old, classic, it hearkens back to a time when men were men and wrote their own device drivers....
