I use the normal version of Chrome as well as Canary (on both Windows and OS X). It's kind of a pain that my TamperMonkey scripts are only available in one or the other. Trying to maintain both, and synchronize changes I made in one to the other, is a ridiculous pain.

I understand that TamperMonkey stores its scripts in a SQLite database. Is there a way to share this between browser versions?

Have you tried using a third party tool to simply synchronise the folder contents? – Oliver G Nov 16 '12 at 12:20
There scripts are not stored in a folder. They're stored in a SQLite database. One solution might be to use a tool to synchronize SQLite dbs, but that can be costly. I'm hoping there's a better way. – iconoclast Nov 16 '12 at 16:21
The current beta version of Tampermonkey lists "easily sync/install your scripts from a single document" as a feature. Have you tried it out? – Oliver G Nov 16 '12 at 17:29
Nope... I'll see if I can upgrade to that version. Thanks. – iconoclast Nov 16 '12 at 17:29
It has it's own extension page:… – Oliver G Nov 16 '12 at 17:43

You can use your Google account to sync scripts. (This is only in Beta yet)

Step1: Log into your Google account in the Google Chrome browser enter image description here

Step2: Go into Tampermonkey Dashboard, then into Settings and change the "Config mode" to "Advanced". enter image description here

Step3: Enable "Tesla" and choose "Chrome Sync"

Synchronize scripts that are downloadable from a Webserver.
Just set the config mode to beginner or advanced, enable TESLA.
Set the mode to chrome sync and login with chrome to your Google account.
