Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

The latest Chromium build adds a new feature that converts user script into extensions, so you no longer need to copy the scripts into a folder.

Simply go to userscripts.org, click on a user.js file and an installation dialog will pop up, asking you if you want to install it:

chromium userscripts

userscript installation confirmation dialog chromium

Since the user scripts are installed as extensions, they are of course available in chrome://extensions/:

chromium extensions

This is only available for Chromium, but Google Chrome dev channel should also add it really soon.

You can download the latest version of Chromium from HERE.
