Access local page variables inside Chrome/Firefox userscript


To access a page's local variables from a userscript, use a callback:

// ==UserScript== // @name Example Script // @match* // ==/UserScript==   var callback = function() {     alert('The page is running jQuery version: ' + $.fn.jquery); };   window.location = 'javascript:(' + callback.toString() + ')();void(0)';

In your callback, be sure to only use multiline comments if needed ("/* comment */") as single line comments ("//"), will prevent the callback from executing.
