Open PDF Files on Google Docs with Greasemonkey

With this Greasemonkey script, you can open any links of PDF files on Google Docs, instead of the notorious Adobe reader.

Advantages

You don't have to wait file loading anymore. It is true that Adobe improved the reader again and again and it became much faster than even a year ago, but it can't be denied that at the moment of opening a file our browser freezes for a few seconds.

With Google Docs, however, you can switch to another tab and continue to surf the web during the file you opened in a background tab being loaded. It's the biggest advantage of web-based applications. Adobe will never able to offer such a function in the future.


Plus, you can use mouse gestures also. You can close the tab or switch to another tab with a gesture, which are not enabled on Adobe reader in tab. For those who use the FireGestures addon etc. will enjoy the script further.

You may think the area of search results became narrower than original, but actually it is NOT if your monitor is wide enough. So it will just make Google better in exchange for nothing.

After installing, search "baseball" on Google as a trial:

Gmail Labels on the Right

Because each label has a different length, first letters of messages will never be justified.

So this style will put aside the labels on the right side for your quick scanning.

Remove Redirection from Google Search Results

You might get a faster access to websites with this Greasemonkey script.

Google Search - Remove Redirection for Greasemonkey

Description

When you click one of links of Google search results, it apparently seems that you access the website directly. However that is not the case. In fact, you firstly access to a Google page and then it redirects you to the original website.

Of course Google is always fast, so I guess you might rarely feel irritated. But even so, sometimes you get kept waiting when you click a link and sometimes that is caused by Google's redirection, while the original website is not heavy at all.

So if you don't want such a redirection and want a slightly faster access, this script will help you.

Google Search - Remove Redirection for Greasemonkey

This script will remove "onmousedown" attributions. It supports AutoPagerize.
