Greasemokey[GM] is a Firefox extension which can change the appearances and functionalities of web pages. GM sits in the browse and make changes after a web page is loaded, therefore the changes,alteration are visible to you only. GM use java scripts code and scripts are easy to install and uninstall.
Few of my favorites script of GM change the appearance of hotmail,webshots, gmail, youtube etc. What the scripts do is to remove additional elements from the page like advertisements and other regular feature which is not useful to you and make the page more spacious and easy to load.
Another interesting scripts allow you to download such data which is not possible otherwise. Like videos from youtube and google videos.
GM is very powerful software which changes the way you browse and sometime such dependence poses difficulty when you are using other browser or PC without GM.
Following are few scripts which I use.
1. WordPress Linker
– This scripts adds a code in the post when you save your post while writing at WordPress. It displays various links to social networking website like digg and del.ci.ous so readers can bookmark your post or alternatively they can email the post.(Nita, you asked for this 🙂
2. Dowbload Youtube Video III
This script will “download video” and a graphic icon below video. Clicking on it will download getvideo.htm file change the extension to .flv. (You will need flash player to play .flv files)
3. Hotmail Ad remover
This will remove advertisements from the top and side bars on hotmail.com pages cleaner.
4. Webshots Ad remover
Does the same trick as above for hotmail.
If you are using gmail and google readers, this script will merge Google Reader feeds in Gmail.
