Use Greasemonkey scripts in IE with Greasemonkey for IE
By on May 19th, 2008

I have been using IE quite a lot lately along with Firefox and Flock but sorely missed the usefulness of the powerful Greasemonkey extension for Firefox.

Greasemonkey for IE is an Internet Explorer extension which lets you to add bits of DHTML (“user scripts”) to any web page to change its behavior. In much the same way that user CSS lets you take control of a web page’s style, user scripts let you easily control any aspect of a web page’s design or interaction.

There are only a limited amount of user scripts available right now, but it would be great if there was compatibility between the Firefox Greasemonkey scripts and Internet Explorer Greasemonkey scripts.

Summarizing

This is definitely a great add-on to have for Internet Explorer and with the usefulness of Greasemonkey I bet there will be quite a few takers for this. Just to add that the popular add-on IE7 Pro for Internet Explorer also allows you to run user scripts just like Greasemonkey.
