    Automated scripts

    I hear of scripts being used to automate functions of a webpage. Does javascript do that, and if so do you need a tool like greasemonkey to implement the script?

    what kinds of functions are you looking to automate?
    thisplaceiknow.com - Search for and submit real-life places.

    Yes!

    Do you need a tool like greasemonkey to implement the script?
    It's optional.
    - If you have, you can set your script to run as soon as the page loads.
    - If you don't, you must call it manually, either copy or paste the javascript: code into the address/location bar, or use a bookmarklet.
