My wife works as a Salesforce Administrator. When Chatter launched she very quickly became annoyed with the new Chatter profile page that appeared when you clicked on a user’s name.
She wanted to go to the User Details page instead as this is where all the Admin gets done. She realised that to go to the User Details page all you needed to do was append noredirect=1 to the end of the Url.
I decided to develop a Chrome Extension to do this automatically for all User Profile links (i.e. Id’s that Start with 005).
