MemeWatch: GreaseMonkey

The latest meme that is appearing on my radar screen is GreaseMonkey. This is a Firefox extension that "fixes" various websites, and new fixes for new websites can easily be added. For example, there is a GreaseMonkey script to add auto-complete to the tag input-box.

That's the cool-thing about popular -- you typically get a 48-hour lead on interesting memes before they hit larger news sites like Slashdot (and a week or two before they hit big media sites like CNet).


  • I know what you mean. I just discovered URIid, but everywhere I look it seems like I'm being hit over the head with GreaseMonkey as the real key to browser-side customization of websites.

  • Ok, that's it Darius, I'm subscribing to your blog. Seems like you and I seem to be interested in similar things. Although I'm not currently into video games... (I was recently very into german boardgames however).

  • Don't worry. Darius will get you into games. (Perhaps whether you like it or not.) ;)

  • Heh ... hope so! The height of my videogame enthusiasm was NES Classic and Super Nintendo. I had a lot of fun playing RPG's and anything Fantasy. I especially had fun playing this fantasy side-scroller called Wizards and Warriors.
