Userscript: Google Maps Print: Skip Steps

Last weekend I was printing directions for driving around L.A. and it really bugged me that the starting and/or ending steps of the directions were usually things I already knew.  Since I don’t work at Google, I can’t fix it for everyone, but I can fix it for myself (and maybe for you).  I wrote this little script to modify the Google Maps print directions page so that I can hide any steps that I don’t actually want to print.  If you want to use it, you’ll need to use Firefox and Greasemonkey, then follow the link above to install the script.

Oh, and I have to say thanks to the creators of the jQuery library.  Without it making life (and coding) easier, I probably wouldn’t have have even attempted this project.
