Add an 'unfriend' button to Facebook

Okay, ever wanted to unfriend people more easily on Facebook? You can simply add an 'unfriend' button to your friends' pages, as you see them. For this little trick, you need to run Firefox or other GreaseMonkey compatible browser, like Chrome. I had shown you, in an earlier post, how to install user scripts to Firefox using the simple GreaseMonkey extension.

You just install the Facebook Unfriend user script to your GreaseMonkey.

Then, with GreaseMonkey enabled, visit any friend's profile in Facebook. Now, wait for the entire page to load properly. Then, the user script, ussing JavaScript, shows a little button on the page, on the top, that says 'Unfriend'. It's quite self-explanatory.
