Script Last Updated (January 25, 2012). Now works with the sidebar ticker too. Detailed changelog below.

Earlier today, Facebook dropped the comment button. And a lot of people have been complaining about this change.

My Class XI annual exams ended today (Okay. Computer Science is still left. But who studies for it anyway? =P), so I was kind of jobless had some free time on my hands. Also, I hadn’t really coded anything in a long time. I was a little tired. But since coding has somewhat of a therapeutic effect on me, I decided to work on a Greasemonkey script to restore the comment button.

I ran into a few hurdles while working on the script. But I don’t really feel like writing about it right now. Still kind of tired, you see. Some other time, perhaps.

To my knowledge, it works perfectly fine with Firefox(Greasemonkey required), Chrome and Opera. But in case you find any bugs, you can report them in the comments below or just shoot me an email.
