Once you've experienced web browsing with auto-loading pagination, there's no going back, it's a must-have. And, out of all the userscripts and browser extensions/add-ons I've tried over the years, AutoPagerize has easily been the best solution I've found.
It works on ~95% of web sites that feature pagination -- at least in my years of experience. To put that in context, I very frequently use a wide variety of sites -- ranging from standards like Google and Filestube to one-of-a-kind niche sites like AniDB that are uniquely coded and thus more likely to have pagination that AutoPagerize can't recognize -- and AutoPagerize works on almost every single one and without skipping a beat. And keep in mind this is coming from someone who spends around 80 hours a week in front of a computer (both as an IT professional and in my spare time) and my web browser is always open and heavily used.
AutoPagerize also has great performance and I've experienced very little negative impact on browsing when the script is executing. At worst, there may be a bit of browser lag or other minor hiccup during auto-pagination, but only on certain sites and infrequently at that. Ultimately, this userscript is very lightweight in terms of browser performance and resource (CPU/RAM) usage. True, it's not a full-fledged browser extension which are more complex and thus, by nature, typically place a higher demand on resources in comparison to userscripts. And, while there certainly are userscripts out there that rival the most bloated extensions in terms of being resource hogs, AutoPagerize simply just isn't one of them.
The only negative aspect is that the AutoPagerize's creator has declared this userscript "obsolete" and apparently is no longer actively developing or maintaining it. Instead, they've switched to developing AutoPagerize as a browser extension. The extension for Chrome works great, however, I use Firefox the vast majority of the time and I've never been able to get the extension to work at all on Firefox due to conflicts with several other extensions that, unfortunately, are even greater must-have web browsing features than AutoPagerize and also features unavailable in Chrome. So, in my case (and quite a few other users from what I've gathered) the userscript is still the best option and, for now, it thankfully still works.
Works well for me on OSX and Windows. I haven't experienced any annoyances or problems at all. Keep up the good work.
This script is much better than any addons i tried so far.The only thing I really would love to see is a Blacklist.
The script works but it adds a tremendous amount of data to the prefs.js file. I have an older (ancient)laptop 2.0GHZ CPU, 512MB RAM, XP-PRO SP3, FF 3.6.13, and this script significantly increased the amount of resources(RAM and %CPU)Firefox used. Therefore I chose to uninstall it. However, the extra load shouldn't be a problem when installed on more modern systems with more RAM and faster CPUs. Is a very handy script and did what it claimed.
This is the most amazing Greasemonkey script ever developed. Its so much faster than e.g. the AutoPager addon.
Besides I love the possibility of adding new pages via http://wedata.net/databases/AutoPagerize
I could not live without this script anymore, it makes searching and reading so much faster in the Internet.
There are only extreme few blogs or other pages where this script makes problems.
Try it and be amazed.
Have been using it for sometime now - great script!
Through I always forget to turn it off when I need to reach the footers, hopefully, & thoughtfully, there's even an ON/OFF switch! =)
PS: This does not work for Google images.
Reading some threads here... I had a look - for the 1st time - at the source code of Google images... Wow! What can I say!?
I used to use CustomizeGoogle for this, this doesn't do the trick any more (just as its successor, OptimizeGoogle).
So now I use this and couldn't be happier.
Very handy, and effective.
On Windows XP, Firefox 3.5.2, AutoPagerize is a must have tool. With it, you can load the next page of an article on the same page without loading a whole another page, and do it successively for more pages. The benefit is that you could load all the pages of the article and still have all of them visible for comparing/referencing and sourcing and not have to open new pages/tabs for each page. The extension works perfectly, as far as I can tell. All you have to do is reach the bottom of your page 1, and see the typical links that list page 2, 3 and onwards at the bottom. AutoPagerize recognizes you've reached the end of the page and starts fetching the next page; you can see it is working by the placement of a small colored square in the top right corner of your browser area. AutoPagerize, once it fetches the next page's text, it dumps it on the current page, after the first page's content, thereby continuing the article in a streamline fashion. IT has always worked for me and have not seen any problems as of yet. Good job on this excellent script!
