3.0 out of 5 stars Good range of examples, let down by poor indexing, 22 Aug 2006

This review is from: Greasemonkey Hacks: Tips & Tools for Remixing the Web with Firefox (Paperback)
I bought this book when I first started writing my own Greasemonkey scripts. It was the only Greasemonkey text available at the time.

The first chapter is very, very useful. It explains clearly some of the restrictions placed on Greasemonkey scripts compared to standard Javascripts, and why they exist. The explanation of the GM-specific methods was also good, though already out of date as some methods were not discussed.

The book isn't much use as a reference when writing your own scripts, as there isn't an index to specific techniques. Instead, I had to skim the whole text to get a feel for what each example did, so I had an idea of where to look in the future. The descriptions accompanying each example does help here, but doesn't make the book as useful as it could be.

In short, the first chapter is a great help to newcomers to Greasemonkey, but the compliments end there.
