UPDATE: Not working with NEW ORKUT! Due to lack of time I find its hard to update this. Anyway if you like this script then you may subscribe to my RSS feed or email alert to receive automatic updates in future!
This is GreaseMonkey script which divides Orkut’s Album page into two section!
In Left section all photos are arranged in scrollable column like a vertical film stripe and in Right section one pic gets displayed at a time! You can click on any pic in left side film stripe and corresponding picture gets loaded in right section without reloading entire page!
You can see following screenshot to get better grip! (Click here to enlarge image)
This script is as usual for firefox users so get that if you don’t have it already! If you are new to GreaseMonkey Scripts, then you may read GreaseMonkey Help!
About Fastest Way… The Script fetches images dynamically thus saves bandwidth by not downloading entire page!
About Simplest Way… The Script let you jump from any image to any other image in completely random way. That too with thumbnails for better user experience!
Broadband users will get a feel that the orkut albums are available offline. It also works with dial-up connection (tested on 56kbps) without any error although when you click on a image it seems like script has stopped working but it will get loaded silently!
I am thinking of upgrading this script to add CACHING support so that all pics will be loaded in background and you can navigate whole album on single page (like its available offline).
Well your comments are all I am waiting for to go ahead! 🙂
