Greasemonkey is one of the extensions that I know many of you are waiting to get upgraded before making the jump to Firefox 3. If that’s the only extension you’re holding out for then I’ve got good news for you… there’s a pre-release version of Greasemonkey that was assembled a few weeks ago (May 19, 2008), and it’s completely compatible with Firefox 3. You can install the latest Greasemonkey 0.8 RC here.

The new version includes some enhancements and, as you can see in the screenshot above, a hip new icon. The release of Greasemonkey 0.8 RC was originally announced in this forum, but after looking around a little bit I noticed that there was an even newer version available. So I recommend directly downloading this latest release if you’re using Firefox 3.

The main developer, Aaron, hasn’t been heard from in a little while. He’s the one that has control over what gets posted to the official Add-ons site, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that the new Greasemonkey will be stumbling on to there any day now. In the mean time you can use the Release Candidate.
