New Editor by default? Answered

I've been a using the new editor, and I think it's a big improvement over the old one. Is there a way I can use it by default? Yes I know it is but one click from the old editor, but by nature I'm a very energy consumption conscious person (aka lazy), and I'd prefer not to expend that 0.25 food calorie on clicking the "try New Editor" button. So how can I reduce global warming and use it by default?


I just wrote a really simple GM script, all it does is redirects the old editor to the new one, no clicks involved ;-)

This will work nicer:
window.location = window.location.replace("edit/", "id/edit")

Umm... How do I use greasemonkey? *curses noobyness*

I get the following every time I click on the New Editor link:

ERROR 500: java.lang.NullPointerException

How unfortunate fro you, the new one toootally pawns the old one : )

I've looked for an option, but there doesn't appear to be any. I'm sure once it gets the attention of the admins they will make it an option.
