11 Awesome Greasemonkey Scripts for Facebook


Lately, I have been talking quite a lot about several Greasemonkey scripts for Facebook. They are purposely installed to help you boost your experience with Facebook. With these scripts, you can put great features on Facebook that are not made available by Facebook itself likes adding download link for Facebook video, removing ads from Facebook, add emoticon lists on Facebook Chat and much more.

Awesome Greasemonkey Scripts for Facebook

I have covered a few great Facebook Greasemonkey scripts in my previous posts and there are a lot more scripts that are worth mentioning here. So instead of writing individual posts to introduce all these scripts one by one, I now compiled a list of 11 awesome Facebook Greasemonkey scripts in this post. All the scripts have been tried and tested. They are all working at the time of writing. And, there are some great scripts that I would like to mention but they were no longer working. What a waste! 🙁

Note that you need to be using the Firefox web browser with the Greasemonkey extension installed to use the following scripts.

1. Facebook PurityGetting annoyed or overwhelmed with all those notifications from the applications and quizzes that never stop flooding your Facebook wall? Use Facebook Purity to disable quiz and application notification messages from displaying on your wall forever!

Once installed, the download video, convert video, embed video and customize code links will be added on Facebook video pages.
