I keep mentioning Greasemonkey but haven't yet had a chance to write up why I think it's important. Luckily I keep running across others who are doing a pretty good job. Ryan's Greasemonkey Stole Your Job (and Your Business Model) is one such example. It's where I learned that a trivial Greasemonkey script exists for blocking AdSense Ads (actually it just hides them).
Scary stuff, huh? :-)
He speculates that companies like Google and Yahoo would use their toolbars to re-insert content that Gresemonkey scripts remove. I hope both companies are smart enough not to fight that particular battle.
