If there is a desired feature missing in a script or extension, or if you want an update for an older script, or you would like a new script or extension, please let me know. Should I have the time and inclination, I'll give it a shot. Controversial scripts requests are fine. Within very broad limits, I believe your personal freedoms should include the unencumbered ability to customize your own personal and private browsing experience of a site without outside interference.
Other Scripts and Extensions
MetaFilter users send the most script requests, but I have created scripts and extensions for other sites as well. This is a list of the other scripts or extensions currently supported and tested as working by me.
