OilCan (Android) 1.0

Greasemonkey on steroids for Android.
OilCan lets you customize any website by inserting JavaScript to change the website and help it reach into the Android world using intents.

Using intents to call other Android apps is really powerful, and opens the door to all sorts of web-based apps. For example, you can make a JavaScript call to scan a barcode, pick a contact, or launch into Maps or other Android apps. You really have to peek at this video to get an idea of what it does.

There is an OilCan site with more details about the Userscript format and security model.

Greasemonkey scripts are known for customizing websites to your personal tastes, and this can really help when working on a small screen. One of the scripts in the video mentiones above trims away extra columns and margins on Wikipedia pages, giving it more screen real estate.

There are thousands of GreaseMonkey scripts, like one that puts favicons into Google Reader, or one that wraps Google search results into two columns.
