The Installation Dialog
When navigating to a user script, Greasemonkey will open its installation dialog instead of loading the script like a normal page. A thumbnail of this dialog is shown to the left. It displays the name and description of the script, if available, as well as the include and exclude rules that apply. Note: Greasemonkey must be enabled to install scripts.
- The Install button
This button will, of course, install the script in question. Like the Firefox extension installation dialog, this button is disabled for a few seconds to avoid the same potential security vulnerability.
- The Cancel button
This button will cancel the installation of a script.
- The View Script Source button
When a user shows the script source, it displays the temporary file that Greasemonkey has already downloaded depicted in this screenshot. In this window there is an information bar at the top similar to the Firefox extension installation security warning. Clicking the install button here will also install the script.
With some scripts installed, Script Management is the next step.
