Mild nerd alert

I just suddenly remembered than I'm using Greasemonkey. Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension which "allows you to customize the way a web page displays using small bits of JavaScript". So first you gotta have Firefox and then you gotta get Greasemonkey and then you gotta choose the userscripts you wanna use. But it's still extremely easy.

I heard about Greasemonkey via BlogU when I was searching for some specific Blogger hack. Anyway. There was a post titled "Make your template editor larger" and I was like YES PLEASE. And then I died and went to heaven. It was quite difficult to use the template editor before because it was so small. With "Blogger large template editor user script" it was like using Notepad but with a nice preview button.

OK. Today I searched for more userscripts and below is what I have found so far. I have already tried them all and they're all working fine.

  • Mail 2 Gmail: makes mailto links open in Gmail. This is the coolest. You can actually click those links now and send the mail you wanted.
  • Gmail Super Clean: Another Gmail script. I have never liked the way the Gmail looked so I didn't really used it much. But with this appearance enhancing userscript I might start using it. It's not like totally awesome but it's definitely an improvement.
