Acme: Sometimes Being Generic Is A Win

Shane O’Sullivan, recently minted as as Dojo committer, has updated his GreaseMonkey script for skipping welcome screens to use Acme instead of Sizzle. Short story: fewer browser crashes and better performance.

If you’re not using Dojo, now might be a good time to ask why your library isn’t using Acme too.

    Hi Alex,

    I’ve also used it in another script I wrote over the weekend, EasyCheckboxes – blog post here:

    It’s used much more extensively in that script, and makes life so much easier.

    Nit: It’s Greasemonkey, not GreaseMonkey.

    Neat though :).
