Getting under the hood

Mark Pilgrim has published Dive Into Greasemonkey, which looks like a great way to learn how to put Greasemonkey to use. I'm looking forward to spending more time with it. I'm particularly interested in seeing if I can use GM_setValue and GM_getValue to further modify LibraryLookup to allow users to select which libraries they want searched without having to modify the code themselves.

Meanwhile, Jon has been Greasemonkeying around with screencasts and password generators. His rebuttal of Nate Root is dead on. Greasemonkey will cause headaches for IT managers, but it will alleviate some too. Extensibility is a good thing. Greasemonkey pain isn't really any different from Excel macro pain or Access data pain.
