Top 5 GreaseMonkey Scripts for StumbleUpon

Recently, I featured the top 15 Greasemonkey scripts for Gmail & Google Reader. It was one of the most popular posts of October. Greasemonkey is pretty popular after all. :-)

For those unaware, Greasemonkey is a very useful Firefox extension that allows you to extend website capabilities by installing little scripts from UserScripts.org.

Chris at Blog-op had posted about some cool tips about StumbleUpon and I came across a couple of very nice GreaseMonkey scripts for StumbleUpon. So, I looked around and found a few more that I thought would be of interest to a StumbleUpon user.

  1. StumbleUpon Quick Tag: Inspired by del.icio.us, this script adds a small panel to new review page to quickly add some tags to your stumble. I am going to love this as I am a big fan of tagging.
  2. NG Extreme StumbleUpon Exporter: Do you like someone’s favorites in StumbleUpon? With this little script you can export their favorites and save it as CSV, XML or Firefox Bookmarks formats.
  3. StumbleUpon Best Friends: Lets you add a section for your Best Friends. It is private and you can easily find people you communicate with often from your ‘hundreds’ of friends.
  4. OnlyFresh: Hides StumbleUpon pictures you have already seen.
  5. Delicious Stumbles: Adds a link to del.icio.us to submit all links on the page to StumbleUpon.

As a bonus, you could use User Script Updates to update your Greasemonkey scripts. But, it’s going to work only for those scripts where the script author has enabled this. I was able to get a few scripts updated with this.

    Cheers K, I installed Greasemonkey on your recommendation, so now as Darth Vader would say, the circle is complete.

    Or something ;-)

    It’s love-hate relationship when it comes to finding stuff with Firefox. you know you want to even though it’s going to slow it down further! :???:

    What is is that allows me to post my recent stumbles in my sidebar? Garry does that on his blog, you may have seen it.

    Mark.. when you are at your profile in SU, grab the RSS feed for that page. You could either burn that feed with FeedBurner or just use that in a RSS widget for your sidebar if your WP theme is widget enabled. I do this in my sidebar as well after Garry’s idea. :wink:

    Thanks, K I was hoping it was something easy like that. :)

    The only problem I found with the RSS method (and it may just have been my theme) was that long names or URL’s of the Stumbles would leak out of the sidebar and across the content.

    The advantage of Stumble Crumble is that it prevents this.

    That’s a great point, Chris. Glad you caught me forgetting to mention that to Mark. :wink:

    I have it in my to-do list to implement it. Maybe this weekend. :cry:

    I don’t run that many Greasemonkey scripts, but might check this one out as I like to use StumbleUpon where I can and when I actually remember to thumb up and down sites – it’s something I’m always forgetting to do!
