"If you're like me, then chances are you often run across websites that don't work quite as you would like. Wouldn't it be great if you could rewrite the Web to suit your tastes, for instance, change YouTube's color scheme or invert Google's color scheme to reduce eye fatigue?

"Enter Greasemonkey, a Firefox extension that allows you to write JavaScript programs that execute on a domain-specific basis. Because JavaScript is capable of manipulating the Document Object Model (DOM) in every conceivable fashion, Greasemonkey enables you to tweak a website's presentation and behavior in innumerable ways. Installing Greasemonkey

"Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension, meaning it extends Firefox's capabilities by running within an instance of the browser. This also means you'll need to install Firefox in order to use Greasemonkey. After installing the browser, go to the Firefox extensions website where you'll find the Greasemonkey page. There, you'll find a button titled Add to Firefox. Click on that button to install Greasemonkey. When installed, you'll need to restart Firefox so be sure to save any browser-related work first."
