Greasy Fork

Shined up real nice.

Welcome to Greasy Fork, a site for user scripts.

What are user scripts?

User scripts put you in control of your browsing experience. Once installed, they automatically make the sites you visit better by adding features, making them easier to use, or taking out the annoying bits. The user scripts on Greasy Fork were written by other users and posted to share with the world. They're free to install and easy to use.

Step 1: install a user script manager

Tampermonkey on Chrome

To use user scripts you need to first install a user script manager. Which user script manager you can use depends on which browser you use.

Step 2: install a user script

A user script's install button

Browse this site to find a user script you want to try. Here is a sample of the most popular scripts:

  • Youtube Embed Tweak HTML5 (16 February 2018) - Forces all emdedded Youtube videos to the new player. With options for: Video size, https, hide annotations and hide related and hide controls
  • Easy YouTube mp3 - The Easy YouTube mp3 Add-on includes a Button on any YouTube Page and allows you to convert the YouTube Video to a mp3 with just one click.
  • Make Bookmarklets from Javascript URLs - When it sees a link to a userscript or general Javascript URL, adds a Bookmarklet besides it, which you can drag to your toolbar to load the script when you next need it (running outside Greasemonkey of course).
  • ZeroHedge Lite - Removes the crap from ZH, fork of Zerocruft

Once you've found a user script, click the green install button on the user script's page, and your user script manager will ask you to confirm the install.

Step 3: use the user script

Go to the site the user script affects. It should automatically do its thing. After trying out the user script for a while, go back to where you installed the user script and leave some feedback for the user script's author.
