Greasemonkey Version 0.8

At long last, the new version of Greasemonkey is available. Get Greasemonkey 0.8.0 from

The most important change for this release is full compatibility with Firefox 3.0. There is also a new feature that allows modularization of user scripts that comes in four pieces: @resource, @require, GM_getResourceURL, and GM_getResourceText. Follow those links to learn how they work. Also:
  • GM_xmlhttpRequest now includes the finalUrl property.
  • Internal code quality improvements
  • New attractive graphics by Pak-Kei Mak
Finally, there is a set of reported issues that are yet to be resolved. Version 0.8.1 is planned, but we feel 0.8.0 is a strong enough improvement to be worth releasing, for Firefox 3.0 compatibility. Enjoy!
