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.
