We, the testers(toolsmith as we like to call ourselves) are not far behind in terms of programming. We(the toolsmiths) are the new breed, its the dawn of a new species.

How to install a user script? Simple. Install Greasemonkey for Firefox, create a js file and while naming the file a certain convention has to be followed and that is fileName.user.js. Right click on the file and open the file with Firefox. Then a window will appear that will ask the user to install the script for the pages mentioned in the script which will also appear in the window and voila!! You have your own user script installed.
This is particularly useful for testing purpose because we are constantly faced with challenges such as entering values in innumerable text fields over and over again. So we wrote our own automation user script that helps us identify text fields in a page and populate them with values of our own choice.
