Using jQuery in Chrome User Scripts (Greasemonkey scripts)

If you want to much of anything useful in a Greasemonkey ("User") script, you'll want to use jQuery or similar library.

Greasemonkey uses a "@require" command to pull in these libraries, but Chrome won't allow this.

To include jQuery in a Chrome user script, here's a good link which pulls in jQuery by adding a element to the page you're working on.

Greasemonkey (User Scripts) in Chrome - @include vs. @match

Greasemonkey uses a "@include" syntax to indicate which web sites a given script should run on.

I believe Chrome accepts the older "@include" syntax for the sake of compatability, but Chrome prefers a "@match" syntax.

For example,
@match http://*
will run the indicated script on any domain.
