A Firefox extension that adds programming functionality to JavaScript for creating more Web page retrieval options when using the Firefox browser.

Some scripts mix content from several sites.

A script can change the appearance of all pages retrieved or just alter the behavior of a specific page from one site. Numerous scripts are readily available from the Greasemonkey repository. For more information, visit and See Firefox.
