Greasemonkey is a very popular Mozilla Firefox add-on that allows users to install user scripts to make on-the-fly changes to HTML web page content while augmented browsing on the DOMContentLoaded event, which happens immediately after it is loaded in the browser. Greasemonkey scripts are commonly used to permanently add functions to web pages, customize or change web pages rendering or designing, and numerous other purposes.
There are literally thousands of Greasemonkey user scripts available, and with the popularity of Greasemonkey addon in Firefox, Google Chrome has added support for Greasemonkey user scripts. With built-in Greasemonkey user script support in Google Chrome, user can implement the customizations on Firefox by running the same user scripts in Google Chrome. In fact, user script support is built-in into the core of Chrome and Chromium web browser, so no add-on or plug-in is required to be installed.
