Greasefire 1.0.1, Find Greasemonkey Scripts the Easy Way
Article by George Norman

The great thing about the Greasemonkey Firefox Add-on is that it allows you to run all sorts of scripts in your Firefox browser (and Google Chrome, which is no longer a Beta). The annoying thing is that it is not always easy to find the scripts you want. With the Greasefire 1.0.1 add-on you can forget about the painstaking process of looking for Greasemonkey scripts – Greasefire will identify all available scripts and present them to you.

Since you will be using Greasemonkey 1.0.1 to find Greasemonkey scripts, it pretty much goes without saying that if you want to use Greasefire you must first install Greasemonkey. Just a precautionary measure, in case you did not figure it out on your own.

“When you visit a web page that has compatible user scripts on Userscripts.org, this extension will highlight the Greasemonkey icon in the status bar. Right click the Greasemonkey icon and choose the "X scripts available" item to see and install the scripts available for the current page,” explains Steve Krulewitz, the one who came up with this Firefox add-on.

If you are the kind of person that takes privacy seriously and are worried about the potential risks of using this add-on, then you need not be. Greasefire 1.0.1 does not provide the server with any of your browsing info; the way it works is by using a local index in order to locate Greasemonkey scripts. You can thus rest assured that details about what your browse for online will not be disclosed. In related privacy and browser news, did you know that the recently released Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 features a Private Browsing mode?
