Hacking Google Maps, continued

Follower commented on my previous post and pointed to the latest in Google Maps hacking, which is injecting external scripts into Google Maps page using the Inject External File Bookmarklet.

This is exactly what Greasemonkey does and, I might add, in a much more automatic fashion.

So, I took Follower's RouteFollow script and, with a few modifications, made a Greasemonkey user script out of it.

Here's the Google Maps Route Follow -- Greasemonkey user script. To run this, first Greasemonkey extension needs to be installed. Then (after restarting Firefox), right click on the user script link and select Install User Script.
