      Sorry Doc for assuming that everyone knows what Greasemonkey is.


      Greasemonkey is an extension for the Firefox web browser that allows users to customize the way webpages look and function by using JavaScript.

      Thousands of scripts, for a wide variety of popular sites, are available at http://userscripts.org. If you're the tinkerer sort, you can also write your own, see http://wiki.greasespot.net/ to get started.

      You can read more about greasemonkey at http://www.greasespot.net/

      You can obtain the latest release of greasemonkey (0.9.12) at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/


      While Greasemonkey is specific to the Firefox browser, other browsers offer equivalent functionality, some are even capable of running the JavaScripts written for Greasemonkey, and some Greasemonkey scripts are written to run in other browsers as well.

      Opera, since version 8, has offered user scripting functionality and is capable of running many Greasemonkey user scripts.

      Internet Explorer, offers similar functionality via IE7Pro, Sleipnir, iMacros, Trixie.

      Chrome, since February 2010, has offered limited "native support" for Greasemonkey scripts.

      Safari (and other WebKit applications), has a SIMBL-managed plug-in called GreaseKit. Since the release of Safari 5 there is an extension called NinjaKit that uses the new API interface.

      Fluid is a site-specific browser with integrated GreaseKit.

      Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, a burger in one hand, a beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

      I would like to recommend a great greasemonkey script for the geocaching.com
      website that I recently came across.
      It is GC little helper <http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/81052> by
      Torsten Amshove
      It has long list of capabilities which enhance the cache pages and other
      pages at gc.com. I have seen requests for many of these capabilities in the
      feedback forum. Here a few the capabilities:
      o Create your own Navigation Linklist
      o Hide Social Links
      o Hide superfluous line breaks
      o Show "n/81" in cache matrix on the statistics page (this capability
      is not configurable)
      o Hide Avatars (Groundspeak has already implemented this capability,
      however this script is not cognizant of that, so if you have that already
      enabled in your profile you will have to enable it in the script
      configuration as well)
      o Mail-Link beside Username (Cache- and TB-Listings) - also adds
      Cache-/TB-Name and GCcode to mail
      o Hide Disclaimer
      o Hide spoiler warning
      o Hide hint behind a link
      o Show percentage of favorite points in listing (while the percentage
      of favorite points is already available by clicking on the dropdown in the
      'favorites' box, this script displays it in the 'favorites' box below the
      number of favorites, so no clicking is required)
      o Adds Map this Location and Route to this Location links to the
      coordinates box. (The Map this Location link performs a function similar to
      the View Map link and Route to this Location links performs a function
      similar to the Driving Directions link, so these seem redundant to me, but
      there is no way to disable them).
      o Displays Decimal and DMS conversions as well as the UTM conversion
      in the coordinates box.
      o Create a VIP-List which the script uses to show if they have already
      found the cache displayed on the page.
      o Search in Logs
      o Show day of week on event caches
      o Default-Log-Type for caches and TBs
      o Cache- & TB-Log-Signature
      There are many other features/capabilities that this script provides and
      although it says that they are all configurable I have found that some are
      I highly recommend this script even if you are not yet a greasemonkey user.
