Questions tagged [script]

Use this tag to post a userscript that operates on Stack Exchange sites and/or uses the Stack Exchange API. For questions about user scripting and Stack Exchange, or its API, use the [scripts] tag instead. Scripts are usually JavaScript and usually browser extensions/userscripts. For other tools, the [app] tag may be more appropriate.
