I love Greasemonkey

Last night I met my buddy Todd at the Candlelight Café for dinner and hacking. We’ve been playing around with this new plugin for Firefox called Greasemonkey, which lets you do some really, really cool stuff. Basically it allows you to automatically edit the content of a web page after you’ve loaded it in Firefox. This lets you do all kinds of interesting things; for example, if you are looking at books in Amazon.com, you could have Greasemonkey go fetch information about that book from BarnesAndNoble.com, HalfPriceBooks.com and loc.gov.

I’ve got to take off to meet up with some people to do a bike ride. More on Greasemonkey and our hacks later.
