greasemonkey

Current Release

Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension which lets you to add bits of DHTML ("user scripts") to any web page to change its behavior. In much the same way that user CSS lets you take control of a web page's style, user scripts let you easily control any aspect of a web page's design or interaction.

For example, you could:

Getting started:

  1. Get Firefox (if you don't already have it).

  2. Install Greasemonkey.

  3. Learn how to use Greasemonkey.

  4. Find useful scripts.

Greasemonkey was heavily inspired by Adrian Holovaty's site-specific extension for All Music Guide and the conversation which ensued after he published it. There were tons of sites I wanted to create SSE's for, but fully-fledged firefox extensions proved too cumbersome. I wanted it to be as easy to create an SSE as it is to write DHTML.

The current maintainers are Aaron Boodman and Jeremy Dunck with the invaluable help of an awesome community of user script enthusiasts.

The greasemonkey project can be contacted through the mailing list or the member list.
