It’s time for server-based Greasemonkey. I support an organization of a dozen or so people, and I find myself answering the same questions about the same Web sites and teaching people the same things over and over
There are so many times in the few weeks since taking that first puff of Greasemonkey, I’ve thought to myself: “I could write a script to fix that Web site.” But, shortly after, the rational part of me chimes in with: “But there’s no way you want to manage all those scripts floating around.”
But what if I built Greasemonkey into a proxy server? I’d route everyone’s traffic through that server, and when it detected a response coming from certain URL patterns, it’d Greasemonkey-up the returned HTML to fix the problems that irritate everyone.
Thus, everyone in this office would get “fixed” pages. Additionally, Internet Explorer users would get the same benefit — it’s cross-browser Greasemonkey.
Someone build this. Thanks.
