My Firefox Scripts

April 1st, 2009

I’ve recently discovered lots of fun things you can do with Firefox, using extensions and the powerful Greasemonkey add-on. Here are two of my recent developments, both of which improve the Google Analytics reporting interface.

***** Google Analytics Full Screen Reports *****

With the rise of smaller netbooks, sometimes it’s helpful to maximize the reporting view in GA.  With this easy add-on, you can quickly expand the reporting view by hiding the left-hand navigation.

Install the Firefox Extension

Install the greasemonkey script (greasemonkey required)

***** Google Analytics Advanced Date Selection *****

If you use GA as much as I do, you know the difficulty of comparing year-over-year dates. The default calendar requires over 12 clicks to make this selection. With this script, an option is added for one click access to year-over-year reports.

Install the Firefox Extension

Install using this link (greasemonkey required)

I welcome your comments on either extension below…thanks!

    I love this! But it is not compatitble with FF 3.5.3. :(
    Are you going to update? I SOOOOO wish ggle had YoY in a drop down.

    Very cool Tyson. I actually had no idea you could use Firefox Extensions to customize GA. The YOY option in the date drop down will be a crazy cool time saver for us since we pull down everything YOY every month.

    Yet another reason why Tyson Kirksey = Google Analytics Ninja !

    Thanks for the info – Nick

    Year over year is exactly what I want to see, but I’m getting a 404 error when I try to use it. Any ideas?
