Save time on Firefox with GreaseMonkey

Updated: 2005/07/22

Introduction to GreaseMonkey:
Sometimes when you use a web service, you thought wouldn’t be faster if the developer has added this button so that you don’t have to go thru all those navigations.

Like me, I find it very harsh by not having a delete button in my Gmail account. Everytime I need to delete an email, I need to go to the pull down menu and select “Move to Trash”.

Recently I have discovered GreaseMonkey extension. It allows users to use customize scripts, or even code on your own (if you know javascript) and able to add/improve feature on website – especially on web site usability and its navigations.

Instructions:

  1. Install GreaseMonkey Extension Updated: 2005/07/22
  2. After restarting firefox, come back to this page and right click on the script link below. You should able to see “Install User Script…” on the popup menu. Click that to install the script
  3. The script will then install into GreaseMonkey. By default, the script should be automatically included with one or more web pages.

Recommend scripts
For end user without programming experience, don’t worry. There are whole stack of scripts already available for you to just install.

Here’s my top recommendations:

  1. Gmail Smart-Delete Button Modification: Enable to add a “Delete” button on Gmail interface! (more..) Updated: 2005/05/28
  2. Ta-Da List Enhancements: “This script will add your lists to the right hand side of the list page.” (more..) Updated: 2005/06/02
  3. CustomizeGoogle – enhance Google search results by adding links to other useful services.
  4. Webolodeon – keep you out of meaningless web surfing. (more..)
  5. Del.icio.us popularity: Sort listed entries by number of linkers! Very useful.
  6. Bloglines Sidebar Squeezer: If you have so many blogs in bloglines like me, you really want to see more sites on the sidebar. This script able to remove the extraneous header and squishes the text of the sidebar so you can see more feeds at once.
  7. Google Image Re-Linker: “It’s purpose is to make links in Google Image Search point directly to the image, instead of loading up a thumbnail in a frame.” (more..) Updated: 2005/05/28
  8. Hotmail Single Window: Remove the javascript wrapper around hotmail external links which spawn new windows.
  9. Del.icio.us Skinner: Able to beautify del.icio.us.
