    Seems after several days of downtime hxxp.userscripts.org has gone to the wind (the domain is available). Although the site was becoming full of malware scripts and spam it was the main repository for some good scripts....This must be a worry to the developers of greasemonkey.

    Well, I've gone to the author's websites for mine instead. Usually it's GitHub for me now.

    Hmm, GitHub is in its infancy, it will take a few years to build up a repository of scripts like those of Usersripts...Most of the scripts I use are on U'sripts anyway so the mirror is useful to me....However as I write this the search function isn't working and that's a real PITA.

    @clubhouse1

    You can use google search

    For example, if you want "uso Count Issues", search for

    site:userscripts.org uso Count Issues

    It will give you this

    userscripts.org/scripts/
    show/69307

    Then convert it to this

    userscripts-mirror.org/scripts/show/69307.html
