First Google Chrome Extension GreaseMetal To Offer GreaseMonkey Functionality On Chrome Platform

After Google Chrome Themes the first ever Chrome extension is now available, Named GreaseMetal the free extension offers functionality similar to highly popular GreaseMonkey extension for Firefox and GreaseKit for Safari, the free extension lets you use existing GreaseMonkey scripts to modify webpages being displayed, this also means Google Chrome will now be able to block advertisements using ad-blocking scripts.

Advertisements Blocked Using GreaseMetal Filter Scipt

Since, Google Chrome does not provide any method to develop or support browser addons, Greasemetal has found the way around by using an inter-process communication channel called AutomationProxy, which is used for automatic testing of web browser functions, After installation, and launching Greasemetal will start hooking Google Chrome to insert userscripts achieving the desired behavior.

As Greasemetal does not have any GUI as of now, you will need to simply add userscripts to the userjs folder under your My Documents folder.

Thanks, was looking for ad-blocking functionality to Google Chrome, searched everywhere but found only here.

Thanks, keep the great work going.

this is good, No matter how big companies try to limit users they always find ways to get past limitations. Google Chrome conquered for ad-blocking.

Didn't work for me :(
But I'm using a huge HOSTS file full of ad-blocking and it works great. So no worries =)

How to add user scripts in userjs??
Some one plz tell me?

Nice Post..

With google officially announcing chrome extensions today, browser war will get hotter :)
This was the most awaited feature i guess.

I'm so glad Google's finally added Chrome extensions, that's the one thing that kept me with Firefox. In particular I needed an decent SEO extension.
