Ever had to check off a bunch of checkboxes one by one? It's a grueling and tedious process, especially when you have to do more than .. say .. five. Never fear! That's why nrlz came up with CheckBoxMate.
What Is CheckBoxMate? This script allows you to check multiple checkboxes just by drawing a box around them.
It doesn't get any more elegant than that and it's one of those tools you don't use every day but when you need it, it's a godsend. The trouble is, it doesn't seem to work at all (without tweaking) with Firefox 3.6+. That's where Greasemonkey comes in.
Summary: CheckBoxMate stopped working, so I jammed it into Greasemonkey, fixed it and released it on userscripts.org.
I'm currently using CheckBoxMate for Greasemonkey with Firefox 3.6.3 on Mac OS X 10.6.3 with absolutely zero problems.
P.S. I've done all of this essentially without nrlz's permission at all, so if he tells me to take this down, I will.
I've tested this on my Windows 7 box at work (Firefox 3.6.3) and it works perfectly. Please let me know if you have any issues.
After becoming repeatedly annoyed at how the ShareThis button would pop up and just stay there at any hint of a mouseover/hover, I wrote this short Greasemonkey script to banish ShareThis from my sight:
