Audible Links Suck Differently Now

Imaging being some poor bastard working at Audible.com.

You get the call to update the code that displays links on the front page. Smiling that naive smile of yours, you ask, “So we can get rid of the pointless, annoying Javascript links? The ones that make browsing our site torture, and bookmarking near-impossible?”

“No, dipshit. Just change the naming conventions a bit, refer to a cookie, but use the same crap links as before. That should break any Greasemonkey scripts that try and inflict usability on our site, yet in no way improve things for our users.”

You slump down, open another box of Swiss Rolls, and churn out the non-fix.

Anyway, I’ve updated the Greasemonkey Audible-fix script accordingly.
