TOCMonkey Adds A Table Of Contents At Any Web page
By on January 20th, 2010

TOCMonkey is a Greasemonkey script for Firefox users, which creates a table of contents at any web page. This enhances page navigation, and users can find information easily on any website.

How to use TOCMonkey?

To use TOCMonkey, you need to install the Greasemonkey add-on for Firefox first. Once you have this add-on, install TOCMonkey from developer Zoran’s site. After installing TOCMonkey, you can use it on any web page to generate a table of contents. You need to run the User Script command to generate the table of contents.

Run user script command to generate TOC

To execute the command, right click on the monkey icon at status bar and select User Script Commands > TOCMonkey: Add Table Of Contents from the menu (see above screenshot). Now, you will notice a small semi-transparent button at the top-right corner of the page with label TOC.   Hover the mouse over the button and a Wikipedia style table of contents will appear.

Techie Buzz Verdict

Certainly, TOCMonkey increase readability of web pages but it is not the perfect solution yet. It uses heading tags (h1, h2 etc.) to generate TOC, hence it may not perform well on some pages.
