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
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.
- Chrome: Tampermonkey or Violentmonkey
- Firefox: Greasemonkey, Tampermonkey, or Violentmonkey
- Safari: Tampermonkey
- Microsoft Edge: Tampermonkey
- Opera: Tampermonkey or Violentmonkey
- Maxthon: Violentmonkey
- Dolphin: Tampermonkey
- UC: Tampermonkey
- Qupzilla: (no additional software required)

Step 2: install a user script
Browse this site to find a user script you want to try. Here is a sample of the most popular scripts:
- Thunder Harvester - This script will search for thunder and magnet links on every webpage,when found, it shows a button to download them all (by sending them to the clipboard).
- FIMFiction - Meta Checker (A/N, IMG, URL) - Checks for certain meta content per chapter (author's notes, images, links).
- NordInvasion+ Companion - Adds various functions to the NI website. A companion script to NordInvasion+.
- IEEE TitleAsPDFfileName - 在下载IEEE的论文将文件名命名为题目，而不是一串数字 save the pdf file using the title as file name.
- AgarBot - Plays Agar
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.
