Introduction

Userscripts are Greasemonkey scripts that run in the web browser, making on-the-fly local changes to specific web pages. In this context, they generally augment MusicBrainz pages and/or facilitate editing. You will usually need to install both a userscript runner (e.g., Greasemonkey for Firefox, Tampermonkey for Chrome/Chromium/Safari/Opera Next) and also to install the scripts themselves in your browser before they will work.

Note Note: A lot of the userscripts listed here will not work properly in Chrome/Chromium without Tampermonkey.

Critical

Importers

These are useful for importing data from various sites semi-automatically into MusicBrainz.

Note: The importers generally function by placing a button of some sort on pages of the site they're made to import from. Clicking that button should open up MusicBrainz.
