Ever since eBay integrated StubHub to their concert ticket searches, the results pages have become almost useless. 1/2 the page dedicated to the StubHub seating map, listing titles truncated to first 30 characters, and it even ignores search terms you may have entered in your initial search. Pretty sure the business plan over at eBay is to make it so frustrating to use that you will just go to StubHub.

Anyhow, I created a bookmarklet for Chrome that will give you the search page back. Do your search, select the number of entries per page and sort order, then run my bookmarklet script. You will get full titles, full page, and the opportunity to add a search/filter word too. Other browsers may/may not work, but Chrome seems to be OK with my tweaking of the page, which is enough for me right now.

For example screen shots of searching for Coachella Weekend 2 VIP tickets, before and after, check out my google code page here (https://code.google.com/p/hide-stub/).

If you find any issues, please let me know and I will see what I can do.
