The hot new Firefox plug-in takes browser customization to a whole new level by letting users filter site content or change page behaviors.
The glory of open-source software is that it allows anyone with the inclination and the scripting knowledge to get under the hood and hot-rod their computing environment. But most of the time, that advantage is available only to people with the programming skills to make the changes they want. That’s where Greasemonkey, a free plug-in for Firefox, comes in — it simplifies hacking the browser.
Released at the end 2004, Greasemonkey is the latest in a growing arsenal of Firefox customization tools. It changes how Web pages look and act by altering the rendering process. Greasemonkey is to Firefox what aftermarket parts are to cars — it lets you personalize your browser by making it faster and more powerful or simply by making browsing more aesthetically pleasing. How and why you will use Greasemonkey (and I predict you will, if you don’t already) will depend on how you browse now.
1) Install the Greasemonkey extension >>
2) Restart Firefox
3) Go to ‘this is a new link’
4) REname the file to rapidshare.user.js & Right click on rapidshare.user.js and choose “Install User Script”.
From File Menu click on Open File then brouse to whereever you saved the ‘greasemonkey.xpi’ plug-in. Open it, wait a couple seconds for the install button becomes active. Click on it to install this plug-in then CLOSE FIREFOX.
Run FireFox again. From the File Menu click on Open File then brouse to whereever you saved the ‘rapidshare.user.js’. Open it. Click the Tools Menu then click on Install User Script then click OK.
The script will let you enjoy “no wait” and multiple file downloads.
. And here is the rest of it.
