Another developer of greasemonkey extensions decided he was tired of always losing his work when typing stuff into a textarea thing, so he wrote this little extension:
TextArea Backup
I think it's pretty cool, I'm using it right now even!

That's WILD awesome, 'Fex! I've always hated losing form data, and given up on some things when losing that info. Thanks a bunch!

Pit your Anti-Firefox ways will be your undoing!

Jonathan inquired about wysiwyg html editors a (long) while ago. I guess the perfect one hasn't been found so far.
As an alternative, isn't it possible to cause GreaseMonkey to change this textarea into a wysiwyg widget?
I know, probably a lot of work; but perhaps someone else already has made something like this for another site?

WYSIWYG = What You See Is What You Get?

Is that using HTML but seeing the preview as you're typing?

It's like typing a text, highlighting it and then selecting B in the menu bar to make it bold.

That is an awesome script. Nice find!
