Guide: Installing Grease­mon­key And User­scripts on Fire­fox And Chrome Browser

Tinkerers always find their way. If you look from far up, browsers like Chrome and websites like YouTube and Facebook look impenetrable. But it is all built on the same code. Some basic HTML, CSS, JavaScript to shape what you see and server-side programming to keep it running. And much of it is open to ‘interpretation’. Especially the front-end stuff.

This maneuverable nature of the internet allows people who really know what they are doing to change and even add to the behavior and appearance of websites featuresThey do this with the help of scripts, known to the internet as user scripts.

These scripts are usually written by seasoned programmers who always want more from the Internet or improve what is available featuresThese programmers are also kind enough to share their scripts with the world, so average joes like you and me can reap the benefits just by clicking some buttons

Think of user scripts as game modes for websites.

But since this is the Web, there are caveats. In this article I’ll show you how to download Greasemonkey, the extension that lets you install user scripts, the best places to find user scripts and how to make sure not to download any of those spammy / malicious scripts.

Tampermonkey for Chrome

There is no Greasemonkey for Chrome, but as script buffs will tell you, Tampermonkey is the Greasemonkey for Chrome.

Download the extension from the Chrome Web Store to get started (no need to restart your browser as this is Chrome).

Best places to find user scripts

Greasemonkey / Tampermonkey is nothing without the scripts. Userscripts.org used to be the best place to find scripts, but it has since been removed (a mirror is available).

But that doesn’t stop us. A number of more than capable alternatives are listed below.

GreasyFork is the most popular of the bunch and has over 4000 scripts plus a chit chat forum.

MonkeyGuts doesn’t have thousands of scripts to its name, but it is one of the most trusted repositories out there.

Userscripts Mirror is a static mirror of the original site. Although the repository has more than 400,000 scripts, many of them are malicious. Only use this site if you know what you are doing or stay away.

How to install user scripts

Greasy Fork Install Script

Once the extensions are up and active, go to one of the repositories over it and browse the scripts. Click on the script you like and click Install this script.

Tampermonkey

This will open a new page with the extension Greasemonkey / Tampermonkey and display both the source code and the code used in the script. Click on Install button and in a few seconds the script is ready to use. Easy!
