Browsing utility toolkit for use with Scriptish/Greasemonkey

This user script gives the user a great deal of control over the browsing experience. It includes a number of commands that can be invoked using the keyboard.

With Alt key

  • 0: Use currently selected text to create the document heading and title
  • 1: Delete all styles and scripts, remove all attributes from all elements excluding link and img src, append URL and time to document, replace embedded videos and iframes with links to their src. Useful for saving web pages for reference.
  • 2: Delete all images
  • 3: Insert margin
  • 4: Delete small images, and unnecessary images like social media icons, avatars, etc.
  • 5: Retrieve all images on the current page and display them as a gallery at the top of the page
  • 6: Delete iframes
  • 7: Show HTML comments.
  • 8: Allow deletion and retrieval of DOM elements using mouse clicks. Ctrl-click to delete, Ctrl-shift-click to retrieve.
  • C: Try to identify the div containing the content and retrieve it if found
  • O: Highlight all occurrences of the given string in the document text
  • P: Convert text separated by br tags into paragraphs, and indent code in pre elements
  • Q: Scan document text and convert text that should be a heading into h1, h2, h3 etc.
  • R: Highlight node containing current selection.
  • `: Highlight selected text
  • G: Delete elements containing text
  • Y: Highlight nodes containing text
  • L: Show log
  • Z: Convert common unicode entities into ASCII
  • F12: highlight scope operators in pre elements. Really helps with readability. Note: must be used with a custom stylesheet.
  • Numpad 1: Auto-fill forms using the field names as a guide. Useful for testing forms.
  • Numpad 2: Get links with href or title containing the given string
  • /: Cycle through and focus form input fields. Useful when you don't want to take your hand off the keyboard to select an input field.

With Alt-Shift

  • 1: Create links to all link and script elements at the top of the webpage. Useful if you want to view or save CSS or JS files used on a page.
  • 2: Replace all images with links. Useful if you want to save a document without the images, but want to save the image links for future reference.
  • W: On Wikipedia, get the links to the large image files for all the thumbnails in the wiki page, and prepend them to the page.
  • F12: Highlight code in pre elements (scope operators and common keywords)
  • A: add an annotation to the currently selected element. Note: must be used with a custom stylesheet to style the annotations properly.
  • C: Highlight divs that seem to be non-content-related, e.g. sharing links, sidebars, related links, etc. Pressing Alt-Shift-C again will delete the highlighted divs.
  • D: Delete log
  • P: Scan pre elements for plaintext links, and convert them to actual clickable links
  • R: Wrap the currently selected element in a blockquote
  • K: If the page has a "Print" link, prepend it to the top of the page
  • L: If the page has a "Log out" link or button, click it. Useful if you hate taking your hands off the keyboard.
  • /: Cycle through and focus form submit buttons

With Ctrl-Alt

  • 1: Insert a custom stylesheet. This stylesheet will display highlighted text, annotations etc. correctly.
  • 2-6: More custom stylesheets.
  • I: Get content for all iframes, and append it to the current page. If a document has multiple pages, you can shift-click on the links to append each page as an iframe to the current page, then press Ctrl-Alt-i to append each iframe's content to the current page.
  • F12: Add a mouse handler that shows you the DOM hierarchy of the currently hovered element. Useful if you're using Developer Tools and don't want to switch tabs just to grab a selector for an element.
  • V: Show page grid structure
  • B: Show page grid structure and div class/IDs
  • N: Show page grid structure, alternate view
