Google Chrome was released to much fanfare last month (see our review of Chrome). Users everywhere are appreciating it, and those who don’t like some aspects of it, find ways of getting around it.
Greasemonkey is one of the more popular extensions for Firefox, and demand has been high for Greasemonkey support on Google Chrome. I noted in my post about Greasemetal, a userscript runtime, that Aaron Bodman, creator of Greasemonkey, is now working on the Chrome team.
His efforts seem to have borne fruit, as versions Chrome from build 3499 onwards will officially include Greasemonkey support. Greasemetal had serious limitations – some types of scripts did not work at all.
Extensions cannot be added to Google Chrome directly(though everyone wishes they could). So, add the parameter â€“enable-greasemonkey to the Google Chrome shortcut. When you want to install a script, put them in C:\scripts.ADVERTISEMENT
Google will probably update Chrome with full support for proper installation of Chrome, so this workaround will be temporarily. Get Chrome nightly builds to use Greasemonkey
