Bringing Gmail Muzzle out of retirement

I really liked the Gmail Labs "Muzzle" feature, which hides the status messages of contacts in the Gmail chat list. Unfortunately, Google retired this lab last week.

Happily, Yojimbow has replicated the functionality of Muzzle in a Greasemonkey script. (The script is only 8 lines long, with just 2 lines of Javascript! A very elegant solution.)

Firefox users can install Greasemonkey, and then install this user script; meanwhile, Google Chrome natively understands user scripts (making them look like extensions), and you can just click on links to them to install.
