The Reddit engineering team has been hard at work creating an amazing new web experience at https://sh.reddit.com.
They are, however, almost certainly being hamstrung by short-sighted business decisions that result in a website bloated with third-party scripts and stuffed full of awful UX patterns that degrade the web experience and promote their native app.
Sheddit leans in to this hard work and ensures that the experience at https://sh.reddit.com is used whenever possible. When using Reddit at this address, Sheddit also blocks and removes what we consider dark UX patterns and attempts improve upon the experience.
Sheddit has launched with the following features which we'll be adding to and updating very soon
Sheddit removes the following features and experiences:
We plan to make all of these actions configurable in the near future
Sheddit provides rich content links through our URL resolver at https://re.shedd.it which can take any Reddit path and resolve the correct Opengraph resource. This functionality is currently missing from the new Reddit web experience, so our resolver will be provided until this is released.
The main area of focus in the coming weeks will be to allow users control over the above functionality. Once this is completed, performance will be the main priority as the listing pages still suffer when getting above a certain number of posts.
