<!-- MAIN CONTENT -->
<p>Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension which lets you to add bits of DHTML 
("user scripts") to any web page to change its behavior. In much the same way 
that <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html#usercss">user CSS</a> 
lets you take control of a web page's style, user scripts let you easily control 
any aspect of a web page's design or interaction.</p>

<p>For example, you could:</p>

<ul>
  <li><a href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/greasemonkey/linkify.user.js">Make 
sure that all URLs displayed in the browser are clickable links</a></li>
  <li><a 
href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/greasemonkey/allmusic.user.js">Improve the 
usability of a site you frequent</a></li>
  <li><a 
href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/greasemonkey/popup-fixer.user.js">Route 
around common and annoying website bugs</a></li>
  <li><a href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/greasemonkey/coralize.user.js">Use 
the <a href="http://coralcdn.org">Coral content network</a> 
selectively.</a></li>
</ul>

<p>Getting started:</p>
<ol>
<li><h4><a href="http://mozilla.com/">Get Firefox</a> (if you don't already 
have it).</h4></li>
<li><h4><a 
href="http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/extensions/greasemonkey/greasemon
key-0.6.6.20061017.0-fx.xpi">Install Greasemonkey</a>.</h4>

<div style="font-size:.8em;">
<p>Greasemonkey was heavily inspired by Adrian Holovaty's <a 
href="http://holovaty.com/blog/archive/2004/07/19/2210">site-specific extension 
for All Music Guide</a> and the conversation which ensued after he published it. 
There were tons of sites I wanted to create SSE's for, but fully-fledged firefox 
extensions proved too cumbersome. I wanted it to be as easy to create an SSE as 
it is to write DHTML.</p>

<p>The current maintainers are <a href="http://youngpup.net/">Aaron Boodman</a> 
and <a href="http://dunck.us/anabasis/">Jeremy Dunck</a> with the invaluable 
help of an <a href="http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org/list.html">awesome</a> <a 
href="http://dunck.us/collab/GreaseMonkeyUserScripts">community</a> of user 
script enthusiasts.</p>
