10 Greasemonkey Scripts to enhance Google


We all use google on a regular basis whether we like it or not. But the company isn’t always able to integrate other services without compromising commercial interests. Even the wonderful firefox addons I looked at last time don’t do everything we want. Thankfully Userscripts and Userstyles provides javascript to customize the look and feel of various google services. Here’s a list of 10 good scripts that should be used in conjunction with greasemonkey.

Twogle
Add twitter results when searching google

Super iGoogle
A minimalist iGoogle interface saving screen space to fit more content in

iGoogle Transparent Header
Compact the content and create a transparent header so your eyes don’t hurt

Google Products
Take advantage of all of Google’s services without having to stray from Google’s homepage

Gmail Mac Theme
Use a Mac OS X theme with Gmail

Gmail Ads
Remove the annoying ads in gmail and read emails in a wider panel

Google Reader Mac Theme

Google Reader Mac Theme Refined

Google Book Downloader
