New Chrome Extension enhances DNA match experience for Ancestry site

New free Chrome extension MedBetterDNA available in Chrome Web Store:

MedBetterDNA can help people who have taken the AncestryDNA Test. The MedBetterDNA extension enhances the AncestryDNA Results website experience by adding more filtering options for the (possibly many thousands) of other people who are listed as potential DNA matches.

After installation, MedBetterDNA adds an entry for itself to the context menu (right mouse click). When your browser is at an http://dna.ancestry.com/matches address, the context menu selection shows the following checkbox choices:

  • show Starred entries
  • show unStarred entries
  • show Moderate confidence
  • show Good confidence
  • show High confidence
  • show Very High confidence
  • show Extremely High confidence
  • show Locked trees
  • show No Family Trees
  • always show Notes
  • Configure options

In addition, MedBetterDNA has a stand-alone configure page to set the checkmark options if you cannot or do not wish to use the context menu. This is accessed from the Options links of MedBetterDNA on the Extension page of the Chrome browser.

By default, all options are checked except "always show Notes". When a checkmark is unchecked, all entries that match that condition are hidden from view. Note that it is perfectly possible to uncheck combinations which will hide all entries, e.g. uncheck both "show Starred entries" and "show unStarred entries".

If the "always show Notes" option is checked, all existing notes for DNA match entries will show on the main listing page simultaneously, without having to click on each note to see them one at a time.

Because of the dynamic nature of the results, which can be updated multiple times while a listing is being displayed, occasionally a result may sneak past MedBetterDNA's filters. Currently this has only rarely been seen with entries that have locked family trees with the "show Locked trees" option unchecked. If this occurs, simply refresh or reload the page, and the filtering should pick up the errant listing(s).

Note that the filtering process depends on a particular web configuration and if that changes in the future, MedBetterDNA's will probably not work correctly. Please notify support if the extension fails after having worked previously so we know to make any necessary changes. This is a first version release and may behave accordingly. All trademarks and registered trademarks are the property of their respective owners.

Update for A Better eBay Filter script

The A Better eBay Filter Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey script has been updated to version 8.0, and uploaded to the Greasyfork site. This version fixes a problem that could cause the script filter lines to not display on certain page, such as when searching within search results.

A Better eBay Filter is a script designed for users of eBay. It filters eBay searches to hide item entries from sellers who have a feedback score or positive percentage below values you specify, or above for feedback score. You can also filter out Top-rated sellers. The input values can be dynamically changed to filter items into or out of view. Settings are saved between browsing sessions.

Starting with this version, the script has been successfully tested with Tampermonkey for Chrome, in addition to the original Greasemonkey for Firefox support.


Post if you have questions about using the script.
