    Aaron Boodman is the developer of Greasemonkey Firefox Addon. He announced that now Google Chrome 4 supports Greasemonkey natively.

    It means you now can add 40,000 more extensions in Chrome 4 Browser. User Scripts has 40,000 odd Greasemonkey scripts.

    Boodman estimates that between 15 and 25 percent of Greasemonkey scripts won’t work on Chrome because of coding differences between Google’s browser and Firefox.

    Greasemonkey script Installation as extension in Chrome 4

    Greasemonkey installation is quick and easy. It is just like installing an extension. It is due to the Chrome 4 ability to convert user script into an extension on the fly. It then stores the user script as extension.

    Boodman warns :

    Note that user scripts are powerful software and have full access to your private data on any web site. So, for example, they could read all your web mail or access your online bank. Be sure to read the comments on any user scripts in order to decide whether you trust the author with this power.

    1. I don’t use Chrome (Nor would I ever) but I do think it was a good move on Google’s part. They always seem to have compatibility in mind with 100% of their projects.
