For those people who aren't up to date, Greasemonkey is an add-on for Firefox that allows you to modify the aspect and appearance of a large amount of web pages by using small scripts. You can find all the scripts available to be installed on the Userscripts web page, but frankly enough, it isn't a very practical way of doing so. That's why Greasefire comes into play.
The perfect couple
As you can imagine, Greasefire and Greasemonkey work together. Greasefire is another add-on capable of detecting if there is a Greasemonkey script available for the web pages you visit. Instead of having to browse the entire Userscripts script file, this add-on will tell us if there is a script available or not at all times. You will also have access to a short description about its functions.
Main features of Greasefire
- Adapt the aspect of the web pages you visit.
- No data sent through servers; scripts taken from a local index.
- View the amount of scripts available, their popularity, update date or source code.
How to use Greasefire
Once Greasefire has been installed, all you have to do is continue browsing as usual. Each time you access a web page with a compatible script, the add-on's icon will light up on the toolbar. When you press this icon with your mouse's right button, you will be able to see a list of scripts available and information about the latter.
Improve your browsing experience on hundreds of web pages that already have scripts. Download Greasefire for free, integrate it with Greasemonkey and save time searching for and installing scripts for your favourite pages.
