Where to find Userscripts
You can find lots of useful userscripts at www.userscripts.org.
Here are a couple of userscripts I find useful:
- AdSweep (Hides advertising from all web pages and removes the space that it took)
- LinkYouTube (Adds a link beside every YouTube video to download it)
- Google Fx (Adds lots and lots of functions to Google search)
- Google Image Search Advanced (Adds lots of functions to Google image search)
- Make sure you have Chrome on the Dev channel (Read more here)
- Right-click your Google Chrome shortcut (wherever it is) and click Properties
- Make sure your in the Shortcut tab
- In the Target box, add “ –enable-user-scripts” after the target. After doing this step, it should look a little like this: “C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe –enable-user-scripts”
Note: Make sure there is a space between “chrome.exe” and “–enable-user-scripts”
Note 2: If you are using XP, make sur that –enable-user-scripts is outside the directory’s quotes.
- If you are using Windows XP, go to C:\Documents and Settings\*USER*\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
- If you are using Windows Vista or 7, go to C:\Users\*USER*\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
Note: Replace *USER* by your username.
- Create a new folder in this directory named “User Scripts”, if it isn’t already there
- Grab any userscript (.user.js) file and place it in this folder
If you have any trouble installing, enabling or finding userscripts, just leave a comment here. Not all userscripts work on Google Chrome, but alot of them do. Have fun!
