Although various plug-ins can greatly expand the functionality and improve the usage experience of web browser, they do consume too many system resources, so that make your browser start and run slower and slower, even get stuck frequently. In other words, too many browser addons end up making the user experience worse! Based on this fact, something better than plugins – userscript emerged, and is becoming more and more popular now. Although it’s a little hard to get started and only suitable for advanced computer users, once you get used to it, you can’t leave it any more.

The so-called userscript is just a short piece of code written in the JavaScript programming language, which can optimize the user’s web browsing experience and increase the control power to browser. Installing these scripts can add new features to any website, make the interface of a website easier to use, hide annoying parts of webpage, and so forth. Another obvious benefit of userscript is that the script for specific function only works on a specific site, and is in inactive state when visiting other sites. This effectively saves system resources (especially the physical memory and CPU usages), which makes a lot of sense for low-configuration computers. While Tampermonkey is just a plug-in that is able to run and manage the JS scripts on any browser.

Tampermonkey is currently the world’s most popular free userscript manager (runs as a plugin) for all web browsers, developed by Jan Biniok from Germany. It provides different versions for web browsers developed based on a variety of popular engines (including Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, Opera Next, Firefox, Dolphin Browser, UC Browser, and more). On Chrome, it is honored as the king of all extensions by some users! With Tampermonkey in hand, you can easily and effectively utilize and manage all your browser userscripts, so as to make your Internet surfing experience more comfortable. As for the userscript, even if you cannot write it by yourself, you can also search and get many practical, ready-made ones from the Internet, then just install and use them directly, without having to worry about anything.

Userscript ends up doing the same thing as a browser extension/plugin/addon (for example, removing ads from a web page, clicking a button on a webpage, changing the background color of a web page, hiding some webpage elements, lifting the speed limit of free file hosing services, etc.), but the two operate by totally different mechanisms. One way to think about this is that the former is an sensor lamp that can detect the human body or sound, while the latter is an incandescent lamp that is always on. Although they both achieve the goal of lighting, it’s clear that userscript is more advanced, energy-efficient, and environmentally friendly. In a word, utilizing Tampermonkey well, from now on you’ll be able to permanently say goodbye to almost any browser plugins, and give back your web browser its originally clean and lightweight body! Because Tampermonkey can implement all of their functions just in one place.

Although some supported web browsers come with native userscript support, Tampermonkey’s scripts will provide more convenience in managing your userscript. For example, it can provide many features such as easy script installation, automatic update checking, a quick look at the scripts running status in tabs, built-in script editor, and more. At the same time, Tampermonkey is also able to run the scripts that are originally incompatible with the host browser.
