Customise how websites look and behave

Greasemonkey is a Firefox add-on which uses small chunks of JavaScript to customise how a web page works.

You don't have to know anything about JavaScript to use Greasemonkey, as there are plenty of free scripts available. And it's surprising just what they can do. As we write, one repository (Greasy Fork) has scripts to avoid ads, extend YouTube, bulk-delete items from your Facebook timeline, download videos, translate text, check Rapidshare links, download Instagram and Facebook albums, and automate, fix and enhance just about every aspect of Kings of Camelot (and that's just on the first three pages).

These scripts can be almost as powerful as add-ons, and they're usually just as easy to install. Find something you like at Greasy Fork, click the link to read more, and if you like the sound of it, click "Install this script". A warning dialog explains what you're about to do, so there's no risk of silent installations. There's an option to view the script source, but otherwise you can install it with a click. Installed scripts can then be accessed via an extra tab on the Addons page, where you'll find buttons to set options, disable or remove them.

Greasemonkey also provides simple tools to create and manage your own scripts (click the Greasemonkey button on the address bar and choose "New User Script"). Even experts may find it a challenge to get everything working, but fortunately Greasemonkey has a comprehensive wiki to offer help and advice.

Version 3.6 changes (News):Feature enhancements:

Feature enhancements:

  • Better support for scripts with a very large number of @include/@exclude/@match rules. (#2318)
  • Display a notification to the user when there is a problem parsing an edited script. (#2319)
  • In GM_info the serving URL for an @resource is listed. (#2281)
  • Added support for @run-at document-idle. (#2109)

Fixed bugs:

  • Repair compatibility of @resource files and certain serving contexts for recent versions of Firefox. (#2326)
  • Correctly refresh files when changing (e.g.) @require lines in a script. (#2311)
  • Repaired binary behavior of GM_xmlhttpRequest. (#2265)

Greasemonkey extends Firefox by providing easy access to a huge range of scripts. Beginners can use it without worrying about the fine details, but if you're a JavaScript expert then it also gives you plenty of site-customising power.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
