blog: Make WhatsApp suck a tiny bit less

I am unfortunately bound to use WhatsApp - crappy as it is. Here is my custom CSS to get rid of some of the major annoyances of WhatsApp Web:

    div[title="Status"] { display: none !important; }             /* no annoying "new status" */
    ._3RWII             { display: none !important; }             /* no fruity profile images */
    ._0LqQ              { display: none !important; }             /* don't display date of last conversation on the left */
    ._2Wx_5             { background-color: white !important; }   /* outgoing messages with white background instead of green */
    ._3LG3B             { box-shadow: none !important; }          /* no shadow below message boxes */
    .tail-container     { display: none !important; }             /* no tail on speech bubbles */
    ._370iZ             { display: none !important; }             /* no check marks */
    ._27Kg1             { display: none !important; }             /* no smilie button */
    .hjJpn              { display: none !important; }             /* no microphone button */    
    ._1_keJ             { background-color: #d9dbd5 !important; } /* conversation background */
    ._25f0v             { display: none !important; }             /* no notification harassment */
    ._3VIru             { display:none !important; }              /* no check marks in conversation list on the left */
    ._1uQFN._18GNg      { color: grey !important; }               /* no different colors for names in group chats */
    .ZObjg              { color: grey !important; }               /* display phone numbers of unknown contacts in grey */
    img.emoji           { display: none !important; }             /* no fucking inline emojis */
