When you click on the monkey on the status bar, it goes sad. And then you click it again, it goes happy again

I know, I may have to stop posting crap in the Tech forum sometime.

I don't have Greasemonkey installed despite its many advantages... just seems way too powerful to the extent of being scary. Strange, I know. :p:

I use the Greasemonkey script Platypus to block certain elements on a page sometimes. But I must admit, the happy/sad face is its most common purpose atm.

what are peoples favourite scripts,

got to be inline mp3 player and ebay auction enhancer (finally a real time countdown). I wish ebay redux worked with the uk site, it makes the american one look brilliant

Basically Greasemonkey is used as a platform by other extensions to dynamically interact with pages at a very, very deep level. It can enhance your Gmail experience for example by adding new features (without them actually being offered by Google), or like Stick Man said, used in conjunction with platypus to neatly remove ads.

I think the sad monkey is when greasemonkey is turned off.

Platypus can interact to a greater extent with a website, removing some untidy elements that refuse to budge with Adblock.

Having you read the thread? It doesn't give you the happy/sad monkey.

I once installed it to give PGP functionality within GMail but have since uninstalled it.
