Firefox, Greasemonkey, and del.icio.us

I got bored and decided to play with greasemonkey. The results are somewhat crude but it works and I think I like it better than my current solution to interface with del.icio.us.

delicious.user.js

Requires: Firefox, the greasemonkey extension, and a del.icio.us account (free)

For those out of the Know: Greasemonkey is a sexy extension for Firefox that lets you execute "user" scripts whenever a page loads. This lets you add functionality, remove banner adds, clean up pages, change themes, etc of pages you are viewing. This prospect is extremely exciting.

Since the Mozilla family support xpath and other neat things in its javascript engine, you can do huge set of actions on the pages you view. This includes using xpath to find advertisements and deleting those elements, for instance. The possibilities are potentially limitless. I highly recommend people having a gander.
