Unless anyone else wishes to speak, tomorrow I will give a presentation
entitled "Greasemonkey + Platypus: The Web Is Your Bitch".

-- Alex

* Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension which lets you to add bits of DHTML
("user scripts") to any web page to change its behavior. In much the same
way that user CSS
<http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html#usercss>lets you take
control of a web page's style, user scripts let you easily
control any aspect of a web page's design or interaction"

* *Platypus* is a Firefox extension which lets you modify a Web page from
your browser -- "What You See Is What You Get" -- and then save those
changes as a Greasemonkey <http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org/> script so that
they'll be repeated the next time you visit the page. Editing pages to suit
your needs is dandy -- but making those changes "permanent" is the real
payoff.
