I've been searching some of the morning today and am unable to find a 'Greasemonkey' for IE8. Does anyone have any good alternatives to Firefox for IE8?

I have a horrendous 'Incident Monitor' ticket app at my company and it looks like it was developed for tiny screens and Ie5, I would like to get some control over this mess.

Greasemonkey would work but app won't allow FF, one of those IE only things.

I'm looking to be able to modify some styles / add to styles / view.

It's true that Trixie has been developed a long time ago but it actually works with IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10 and even IE11. I've been using it for a long time.

Some time ago the website went down but you can download it from my Dropbox: Trixie 0.2.3.zip

To operate it:

  1. put your userscript in c:\Program Files (x86)\Bhelpuri\Trixie\Scripts\ folder (it contains some samples you can start with)
  2. restart IE or go to "Tools" -> "Trixie Options" menu and click "Reload Scripts" button (no need to restart IE)

Also you can enable/disable scripts using checkboxes. That's pretty much all you need to know.

NOTE: One issue though, the script is not executed on page refresh (F5 or Ctrl+F5), you need to click on the address bar and hit Enter (not a deal breaker, at least for me).

A Trixie Clone has been developed, that works with IE11 on Windows 8:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/trixiewpf45/

It is not the simplest to use, i.e. if you develop userscripts you have to reload them via the Trixie settings panel to refresh the scripts.
