Is there a way I can hide comments by default on SoundCloud?

I saw the plugin for Chrome but I don't always use Chrome. Is there a better solution than that?

Here's a tampermonkey/greasemonkey script that disables comments in Soundcloud new and classic view:

// ==UserScript==
// @name           SoundCloud - Hide comments
// @description    Hides comments on tracks
// @include        http*://soundcloud.com/*
// @require        http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js
// ==/UserScript==

$("<style type='text/css'>"+ 
  ".waveformComments{ display:none !important;}" + 
  ".commentBubble__wrapper{ display:none !important;}" + 
  ".commentPopover{ display:none !important;}" + 
  ".waveform__layer.waveform__scene canvas:nth-child(2){ opacity:0 !important;}" +

No there is no better solution currently than using a plugin or manually clicking the disable comments button.

Or you can use this userscript SoundCloud - Hide Comments

This one, which is similar, does not work SoundCloud Hide Comments

The answer/script by phwd works well also, but you can short-hand it with:


I tested in Chrome and Firefox (using the console).
