About GreaseMonkey

Greasemonkey is a powerful tool for customizing Firefox Extensions.

Turnabout is a tool for IE for the same purpose. Its APIs are largely compatible with Greasemonkey, allowing for cross-browser user scripts.

Opera can also run Greasmonkey scipts using the built-in support for user javascripts.

While there is no way to extend Safari directly, Safari Guide will allow you to run JavaScripts (though not GreaseMonkey scripts) against the front page in Safari.

This page collects ways to use them with microformats.
