Deleting page elements using removeChild in JavaScript

Here’s a handy(?) script to delete pieces of any page you’re on when you click on them:

javascript:document.onclick=new Function(‘e’,’document.all?;
src.parentNode.removeChild(src);return false’);void(0);

Go to any page on the web, paste it into the address bar of your browser and then start clicking around. It works okay in IE6 and Firefox – I haven’t tried it in anything else but it should be okay in IE5 (PC), and might work in Safari.

It uses JavaScript to access the DOM and then tells every element you click on to delete itself from its parent. Generally, a bit suicidal.

Try it out by clicking on this link and then clicking around on the page.
