I've finally managed to rewrite quite a bit of the WAGger
to run in Greasemonkey
, a sort of crazy swiss-army knife for Firefox
. My only experience with Greasemonkey up until now was modifying Peter Binkley's Firefox extension
Now I'm pretty happy I invested some time.
First of all, I have the WAGger persistence that I really could never get from the PHP Localizer. Instead of requiring the user
to know when to use the bookmarklet, WAG the Monkey
knows when to wag for the user. Of course, this assumes it's always on, which is less than ideal.
Another advantage is that it's fast. Real fast. Like so much faster. Like really.
The best part is that I think I can use most of it for a better and faster bookmarklet style WAGger, as well.
If you want to try it (for a Georgia Tech experience), install Greasemonkey, then this user script
has always given me the willies...
