Scriptish – Promises Better Firefox 4 Userscript Support and Performance

Monday, February 28th, 2011

If you use JavaScript with Firefox 4, here’s an interesting alternative to Greasemonkey

Firefox 4 users who want to work with userscripts, small JavaScript programs that change a website’s functionality or add features to it, can install the very popular Greasemonkey extension, or the lesser known Scriptish.

Given the popularity of Facebook and Twitter, this makes a heck of a lot of sense …

Mozilla F1 is one of the few official add-ons by the Mozilla Messaging team. The extension basically offers quick access to share links and websites faster.

Firefox Extension Options Menu Add-On

Interesting: A Firefox add-on that’s designed to help you manage your other Firefox add-ons …

Many Firefox extensions come with an options page to customize their behavior, interface or functionality. These pages are sometimes accessible through context menus if an icon of the extension is displayed in the Firefox interface. Most of the time however no direct options access is available which means that users have to open the Firefox add-on manager to open the options of the extension there. This is not the most user friendly way, especially if the options need to be accessed regularly.

There are however other possibilities where images may need to be resized. This is for instance the case on forums where images break the forum layout when they are too large.
