Tampermonkey is a reliable browser extension that enables you to easily manage userscripts for various Blink-based Internet browsers such as Chrome CoolNovo or Opera Next.
The Tampermonkey extension offers better support when managing userscripts compared to Google Chrome's native support. Some of the important features of Tampermonkey is the ability to view what scripts are running, the ability to install and auto-update scripts.
Another advantage of using Tampermonkey is that it might be able to run scripts which can not be run on Google Chrome itself.
Once installed, you will be able to see a button on the upper right corner of your browser, on the toolbar. Clicking on it will display the main menu that you can use to check for userscript updates, view which script is running, add new script, access the dashboard and more.
If you need to edit or create a new script, then Tampermonkey has got you covered. You can use its integrated code editor together with its syntax check with JSLint.
Tampermonkey is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
NOTE: To install the Tampermonkey extension for Chrome, drag and drop the downloaded .crx file onto the Chrome Extensions window.
