    Firefox Greasemonkey script for GMail.
    I use FireFox as my main browser since their first version and i just love it. Firefox can be customized according to your style. Before this i have talk write about FireFox extension for Adsense and now i'm going to share with you a monkey. Actualy it's a grease monkey.

    Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension which lets you to add bits of DHTML ("user scripts") to any web page to change its behavior. In much the same way that user CSS lets you take control of a web page's style, user scripts let you easily control any aspect of a web page's design or interaction.

    The script i'm going to share with you, really handy for GMails. It enables you to preview the emails before opening it. Easy to spot spam without opening the email. You need to install Greasemonkey before you can use the script. Small and fast downloading even for 56k modem users. Below is what the author have to say about GMail Preview Bubbles :

    One of the things touted by the upcoming Yahoo Mail and Hotmail releases is that they will have a preview/reading pane which will let you see message contents at a glance without having to navigate to an entirely new view. Gmail offers a lightweight version of this already, by showing the first hundred or so characters of each message as a snippet next to the subject. While this is handy for one-liner emails, a full-blown preview pane is often more appropriate.

    Given my past experiences with Gmail and Greasemonkey, I figured that adding a preview area to Gmail may just be possible. Ignoring the technical aspects, the first issue was deciding what it should look like. My main issue with traditional preview panes is that they take up a lot of room, even when they aren't needed. Eventually, I was inspired by Google Map's bubbles and decided to try that approach.

    Give it a try and i'm sure you going to love it. If you want to find more Greasemonkey script, just search for it at their official site. Too many to type but read their instruction first before using any Greasemonkey script. Make sure you're using the right version of Greasemonkey and FireFox. LifeHacker is giving out their preview about the best Greasemonkey.
