Greasemonkey UserScripts

NOTE: This page is only relevant for users of Firefox. You need the greasemonkey extension of firefox for these scripts to work.

Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension that allows you to write scripts that alter the web pages you visit. You can use it to make a web site more readable or more usable. You can fix rendering bugs that the site owner can't be bothered to fix themselves. You can even automatically retrieve data from other sites to make two sites more interconnected. In short it will let you be in control of the sites you visit.

Greasemonkey by itself does none of these things. In fact, after you install it, you won't notice any change at all... until you start installing what are called 'user scripts'. A user script is just a chunk of Javascript code, with some additional information that tells Greasemonkey where and when it should be run. Each user script can target a specific page, a specific site, or a group of sites. A user script can do anything you can do in Javascript. In fact, it can do even more than that, because Greasemonkey provides special functions that are only available to user scripts.

The following are some User Scripts that I have created. For installing these scripts, first install Greasemonkey extension for firefox. Then right click the link and choose 'Install User Script' Option from the context menu.
