Softonic review

Modify every aspect of your favorite websites

If you have some basic programming skills, you can adapt a website just the way you want it by creating scripts. Greasemonkey makes the process a lot easier by enabling you to both find and create scripts online.

Greasemonkey is similar to Yontoo Layers in that it is a Firefox plugin that allows you to apply JavaScript to web pages which changes their appearance and behavior. If you don't know how to create your own, there are several Greasemonkey scripts online that you can apply instantly. You can enable and disable the Greasemonkey plugins at any time.

For example, you can change the design of YouTube to give it a very elegant black look. Or, if you want to download photo albums of your friends in Facebook, simply install a Greasemonkey script that adds a download link on each photo. Alternatively, want to turn the background of the Google search page to black? Simply install a Greasemonkey script and the color changes instantly.

There are many other useful scripts that allow you to remove ads from some sites and optimize page loading of popular sites such as Gmail , Flickr, Wordpress, MySpace, Digg etc. To install a script, just click on "Install this script" but if you have programming knowledge - why not create your own? You can do just about anything you want.

Greasemonkey is an excellent way of customising pages in Firefox.


  • Customise almost any website in Firefox

  • Perfect for those with Javascript knowledge
