"Greasemonkey Hacks" is an invaluable compendium - 100 ingenious hacks for power users who want to master Greasemonkey, the hot new Firefox extension that allows you to write scripts that alter the web pages you visit. With "Greasemonkey", you can create scripts that make a web site more usable, fix rendering bugs that site owners can't be bothered to fix themselves, or add items to a web site's menu bar. You can alter pages so they work better with technologies that speak a web page out loud or convert it to Braille. Greasemonkey gurus can even import, combine, and alter data from different web sites to meet their own specific needs. Greasemonkey has achieved a cult-like following in its short lifespan, but its uses are just beginning to be explored. Let's say you're shopping on an e-commerce site. You can create a script that will automatically display competitive prices for that particular product from other web sites. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination and your Greasemonkey expertise. "Greasemonkey Hacks" can't help you with the imagination part, but it can provide the expert hacks - complete with the sample code - you need to turn your brainstorms into reality. More than just an essential collection of made-to-order Greasemonkey solutions, "Greasemonkey Hacks" is crammed with sample code, a Greasemonkey API reference, and a comprehensive list of resources, to ensure that every resource you need is available between its covers. Some people are content to receive information from websites passively; some people want to control it. If you are one of the latter, "Greasemonkey Hacks" provides all the clever customizations and cutting-edge tips and tools you need to take command of any web page you view.
