Greased Lightbox

As far as viewing graphics goes, Lightbox development has gone a long way for making it look more professional and pretty. What if you could add that to a Web site that didn’t provide it in the first place? To do that, you will need the Greased Lightbox Greasemonkey user script.

Greased Lightbox is a Greasemonkey/Creammonkey/Opera user script designed to enhance browsing on websites that link to images such as Google Image Search, Flickr, Wikipedia, Facebook, MySpace, and deviantART.

This script adds a nice interface to any graphics you might be browsing. I have been using a lightbox script for WordPress on SB1Online.com for some time now and I just love it. Adding that functionality to a Web site that doesn’t have it is even cooler.

To use this script you must have Greasemonkey for Firefox installed.

So watch out for the newest Greasemonkey posts, and if you have any scripts to suggest just send them in to me.

Making MySpace Usable with Firefox

You know and I know it, MySpace is ugly as hell and filled with a lot of ugly Web pages. Even the basic design of MySpace is down right unusable at times. So why use it? Well, everybody and their grandmother is on there, so it is still a good way to stay in touch with folks. So you don’t want it to be ugly and unusable, but you do want to use the service. What is a guy to do?
