Online Time Savers

These handy Greasemonkey scripts help keep online time sinks under control.

5. NoDelay

Anyone who has downloaded files from sharing services like RapidShare or Megauploadhas run into download landing pages that require visitors to wait for up to 2 minutes before they can download the file they came for. The NoDelay Greasemonkey script takes you straight to your download, with no unnecessary pauses or other tiresome hoop-jumping required.

6. Stealth Kiwi

With Stealth Kiwi, you can block time-wasting Web sites during your workday and watch your productivity skyrocket.
The Internet is a magical place--so magical, in fact, that unless you have the self-control of a Zen monk, you can easily waste hours every week browsing various guilty pleasures online. The Stealth Kiwi script keeps a tighter rein on your unproductive surfing habits by preventing unfettered access to your browsing weaknesses during your 9-to-5 hours.

To help you preserve your sanity, however, Stealth Kiwi permits you a 10-minute browsing break every hour. This completely customizable script is the closest thing I've seen to bottled self-control.

7. The Movie Dude

The Movie Dude streamlines your film research and rentals with links that integrate the most popular movie sites.
Movie lovers tend to spend hours researching films on the Internet Movie Datebase, reading reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, and adding films to their Netflix or Blockbuster queues. The Movie Dude script adds links between these popular movie destinations (and others), bringing greater continuity to the process of finding a movie you're interested in on IMDb, researching it at review sites, and adding it to your queue or purchasing it online.
