Editors' Review

+
More than a utility, this popular Firefox add-on is a minor revolution. It allows you to install scripts that customize the way the browser displays Web pages. For instance, a script might fix the colors and layout on badly designed pages, remove sponsored links and Flash, zoom images, convert currencies, or allow you to add comments. With the judicious use of wildcards, Greasemonkey scripts can be designed to work only on specific sites or on a variety of pages. Plenty of ready-made scripts are available on the Greasemonkey site, though many didn't work in our tests. You can also design your own, either manually or by using the Platypus tool. This latest version includes improved security and a new right-click feature that lets you easily enable and disable scripts. As for everyone else, if you're a Firefox user who likes to tinker and wants a glimpse of the future of Web browsing, Greasemonkey is a must-download.

    September 13, 2007   |   By americanflyer1

    Version: Greasemonkey 0.7.20070607

    Cons

    I don't know if it was my PC not being able to download the Firefox Version of this add on or something else like my connection but the download would not complete and after I contacted my main IE7 I got that to open up so I just cleared a lot of things so my memory and amount of space on my Hard Drive I had to delete quite a few things.

    "The single best extension for Firefox"

    May 28, 2005   |   By Forbidden

    Version: Greasemonkey 0.2.6

    Pros

    This extension can do so many things. With this extension you install things called scripts, they allow Greasemonkey to overwrite website Java code. Basically this program can do things like Remove ads, auto login to websites, secure your internet privacy, and MUCH MUCH MORE.

    Cons

    Greasemonkey can't automatically check for user script updates...
