for Firefox 1.5 and 2.0
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:
- Make sure that all URLs displayed in the browser are clickable links
- Improve the usability of a site you frequent
- Route around common and annoying website bugs
- Use the Coral content network selectively.
Get Firefox (if you don't already have it).
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.
