Firefox is a great web browser, is totally free, and rather nicer (not to mention more secure) than Internet Explorer. It also supports "add-ons" - extra programs that extend its functionality.

Greasemonkey is an add-on for Firefox that allows you to run "scripts", or little programs that alter the web pages you view.

To install Greasemonkey:

  • If you're not running Firefox, download and install it.
  • In Firefox, go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748, and click on the "Add to Firefox" button.
  • Firefox will pop up a dialog box asking you to confirm that you want to install Greasemonkey - click on "Install".
  • Restart Firefox to finish the installation.

You will now be able to control Greasemonkey using the Tools > Greasemonkey menu in Firefox.
