I've read about your greasemonkey scripts before, but I've never tried one. In fact, I don't use any plugins for my browser at all. Gasp! I know, how 20th century of me.
So what else, besides download it, do I need to do to make these things work? The last thing I want is some screwed up thing to happen to my browser. I think it happened once and so I've avoided them ever since.
Don't worry, there is very little chance of screwing up your browser here. The worst case scenario is that you just remove the things you added and you're back to normal. :)
First off, what browser do you use? A lot of this stuff is very specific to which browser you're using.
Second, have you checked out the wiki yet?
There are links there to information on Greasemonkey and Stylish, which further tell you how to go about setting it up.
But don't worry if it's just all too much. I'd be happy to walk you through it here. Just let me know.
My question for you. Would this also apply to Greasemonkey, Stylish, and any of your scripts I Install? If I have them on my daily machine (MacBook), would they be automagically installed on any others where I log in to Chrome?
From the descriptions and screenshots, you have done some fantastic work in making LT more usable.
To be honest, I never use the chrome sync feature (I use FF as my primary browser). But according to the TamperMonkey (that's what you'll use on Chrome instead of Greasemonkey) page it supports sync if you turn on the option in TM:
Looking at Stylish, I'm not sure. The most recent thing I can find is this forum post from last November:
As you can see, I posted there asking for clarification.
Good luck and let me know how it works!
In the meantime, it's really INCREDIBLY easy to turn a script off or the entire set of scripts of. It's like two clicks and the icon is right there on the screen next to the three line options icon.
But if that's still too troublesome, no worries.
Of course, I only look at LT on my lunch hour and breaks. :-)
Besides, I use XMarks to keep my bookmarks synced between computers and even different browsers on the same computer, and LastPass to help me remember passwords, so I don't need my browser to function as anything except a web page display mechanism.
All styles (used in Stylish for Firefox and Chrome) are CSS.
