Daily Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


Customize Your Web (CYW) let's you customize your favorite websites with just a few clicks. What Greasemonkey is for developers is CYW for non-developers. You can remove/rearrange /modify elements, add keyboard shortcuts and do many other things. More advanced users will also be able to insert javascript, or even re-style the CSS of any webpage they like. You can also add keyboard navigation or auto-executing macros.

Customization capabilities include:

* Removal and rearrangement of elements (cut / copy / paste behavior)
* Modifying of elements in every possible way (changing size, color, default values etc.)
* Definition of keyboard shortcuts / shortstrings for any clickable element
(shortstrings are multi-character shortcuts, e.g. "SO" for a "Sign out" Button)
* Adding keyboard navigation support for any list of elements
(e.g. for the result entries of search)
* Insertion of arbitrary HTML and JavaScript code
* Definition of small macros which are triggered by a shortcut
* Automatically triggering actions on page load (e.g. for automatic click on a login button or
focusing a special field)

Check out the demonstration video below for an overview of what Customize Your Web can do:

Even though on it's webpage it says that Customize Your Web is only available for Windows users, I've installed it on Linux and it works! If you are using Linux, install this Firefox extension from it's versions page (don't forget to check the "Let me install this experimental add-on" box), even though it says "Windows only".
