My Firefox Addon today is something that doesn’t need too much of an introduction for avid Firefox users. It’s Grease Monkey Firefox addon. The Grease Monkey Firefox addon allows Firefox users to customise the way a website is displayed or it functions.
While the question arises about going this extent to customise a website which you view/use, it certainly makes sense for you to choose to view the website the way you want to and with a community contributing, I would ask why not??
Let’s look at a couple of scripts for instance and you can understand the power of this simple addon.
This is amazing! again you would appreciate if you are a Facebook addict (or should I say user??)
It removes all messages posted by applications like quizzes etc written by external application developers onto your homepage. That effectively means removes almost all spam of your Facebook homepage.

Once installed, to install scripts like the ones above, go to the script home and click Install button on the top. That should take care of it.
