CH MTurk HIT Link Cleanup

On Oct 12, 2016, Amazon added a bunch of useless garbage variables to all the HIT links on MTurk search results pages, making your browser history no longer able to change the link color of HITs you've already visited. This script removes the garbage from those links so your browser history can work properly again. And if you put it first in your userscript execution order, it should also fix some other scripts that were affected by this garbage.

Author's Description

On Oct 12, 2016, Amazon added a bunch of useless garbage variables to all the HIT links on MTurk search results pages (such as HITs Available To You, among others), making your browser history no longer able to change the link color of HITs you've already visited (because some of the added variables change every time the arrangement of the HITs on the search results pages changes). This script removes the garbage from those links so your browser history can work properly again.

And if you put this userscript first in your Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey execution order, it should also fix some other scripts (such as preview/accept/hoard link-splitting scripts and mmmturkeybacon Color-Coded Search with Checkpoints) that are affected by this garbage.

It's also good to have so if you ever decide to copy a HIT link directly from an MTurk page to share somewhere, it won't be loaded with the extra garbage.
