google-chrome-logoGreasemonkey is one of the most popular addon for Firefox that lets you add scripts and modify how a webpage or a specific feature in it works. It let’s you use third-party javascripts in your browser for additional functionality.

I have already shared how you can install Greasemonkey scripts in Opera and now here’s a method to run them in Google Chrome browser.

How to Use Greasemonkey Scripts in Chrome

In the past, the only method to install Greasemonkey scripts in Chrome was to use bookmarklets, but no proper solution was available. Enters Greasemetal.

Greasemetal is a userscript runtime for Google Chrome. The runtime hosts userscripts (tiny javascript files that modify the webpages being displayed) to be executed on Google Chrome, similar to what Greasemonkey does for Mozilla Firefox.

Once installed, launch Greasemetal from the Start Menu. Greasemetal will in turn start up Google Chrom e, while hooking its behaviours to insert userscripts.Once you have started running Greasemetal, add userscripts (Greasemonkey scripts) to the userjs directory under your My Documents folder (or Documents folder on Windows Visa and Windows 7).
