I am a passionate Stack Exchange user and I have a lot of userscripts in my desktop Chrome browser, installed with Tampermonkey. I want to use them on my Android phone, is it possible?


Google Chrome on Android so far doesn't support plugins, of which Tampermonkey is necessary to run userscripts, so here I recommend Firefox for Android. You can install Tampermonkey addon in Firefox and then start with your favorite scripts. Note that all userscripts are not compatible with Tampermonkey such as SE-AutoReviewComments for which you need USI- Unified Script Injector addon.

Where can I find scripts to play with?

Stack Apps is a Q&A site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. People discuss about developing around SE, and publish their projects there. You can find a lot of userscripts in the scripts section.

One of my scripts isn't working

beeshyams asked me this question before, but I wasn't a Firefox user then, so I installed Firefox fresh and installed that userscript, and found nothing wrong.

When you encounter some issues with userscripts, try removing and reinstalling them, as well as clearing/resetting your Firefox addon, and see if the issue resolves by itself. Usually this solves 99% of them.

    Userscripts are a big help for those who use mobiles mostly to browse SE sites. Scripts such as Auto review are very useful in reviewing and commenting with customized canned comments. Scripts from Stack Apps can further enhance ease of mobile reviews – beeshyams Dec 16 '18 at 7:24

    There's also Greasemonkey which is the original such add-on for Firefox. – wizzwizz4 Dec 16 '18 at 7:57
  • FF 81 (mobile) has disabled the TamperMonkey addon (it's listed as "Not Yet Available"). Apparently it's in the pipeline – Machavity Oct 8 '20 at 13:50
