I use Firefox as my browser for Flickr, primarily because I can use several Greasemonkey scripts which add usability features to the Flickr pages. If you’re not familiar with Greasemonkey, it’s a Firefox add-on which allows scripts to be run which alter the display of a web page.
In no particular order, here are the scripts I use for Flickr along with links to the scripts and a short description of what they do:
Flickr EXIF Decorator: adds a small overlay to the upper left corner of an image displaying some basic EXIF information when the mouse is hovered over the image.
Flickr Move comment form up: moves the comment box to the top of the other comments (right below the photo).
Flickr New Contact More Links: adds additional information to the “someone added you as a contact” messages from Flickr, including links to the person’s Explore photos and thumbnails of their most interesting pictures.
Flickr Multi Group Sender: enables the ability to send a photo to more than one group via the “Send to Group” button in Flickr.
FlickrPM: adds a bunch of icons next to usernames in Flickr that link directly to profiles, FlickrMail, most interesting, and other options.
Thoughts? Suggestions for other good scripts I might enjoy? Leave a comment below…
