PageZipper: Firefox Add-on to Remove Next Button
Article by George Norman

One of the great things about the Mozilla developed Firefox browser, besides its high level of security, is the fact that it is highly customizable – thanks to the multitude of add-ons out there that the user can take advantage of. PageZipper is an add-on you can fit to the Firefox browser and get rid of the annoying “Next” link employed on so many web pages.

“Ever read one of those top ten lists or photo galleries where every item is on a different page? Clicking "Next" and waiting takes longer than actually reading the page. PageZipper automatically merges all the "Next" pages into one, so you can skip directly to the stuff you want,” explains developer Jonathan Koomjian.


The whole process is quite straightforward, and it involves the following steps:
Step 1. Get the PageZipper Firefox Add-on (download location here)
Step 2. Click View-> Toolbars -> Customize and drag the zipper icon onto the toolbar.
Step 3. Click the zipper icon whenever you want to run PageZipper and get rid of the “next” button.

The downside is that PageZipper is an experimental Firefox add-on, meaning that an editor did not find the time to go over it and assess whether it can work smoothly or not. There is a workaround that will please those users out there who do not have Firefox installed on their machine: the PageZipper bookmarklet – details are provided here.

“PageZipper is most useful on image galleries. IMHO image galleries that put each image on a separate page are a blight on the human race. Have you ever been on a gallery that’s so slow you actually click “next” as soon as the page loads, because you will be done viewing the image before the next page loads?? Well PageZipper makes photo galleries work the way nature intended,” explains PrintWhatYouLike.

Similar functionality is provided by another Firefox add-on, mainly AutoPager – details here.
