user.js scripts for browser (firefox & chromium)

I wrote a Greasemonkey script for a friend: Disable keyboard input. As strange as it sounds, the goal is to let someone navigate with a mouse but not use they keyboard to enter stuff. The user suffers Alzheimer's disease.

I found out by accident that chrome also supports firefox greasemonkey user.js. It treats them as extensions. Now chromium doesn't seem to have a GUI to manage the installed scripts, and as it changes the script's file name upon installation, I had to use grep to find the proper file. On linux, that particular installation went under:


Stop the browser, delete the directory and restart the browser to get the extension removed.
