You can write your own scripts too. Mark Pilgrim’s definitive Greasemonkey guide, diveintogreasemonkey.org will show you how.
My new brilliant idea: I haven’t used Greasemonkey that much yet but for years I’ve wanted a solution to get easy information about the ethical and environmental profile of a firm or product when I’m in a store. Unfortunatly this is not really feasible, but it could be done in the web using Greasemonkey (+ a wiki of conserned citizens, and perhaps import of existing data (?) by XML. And then the option to edit the wiki througt a greasemonkey script.)
I think I will check if there are any only databases with this kind of data, I know there used to be one in Norway. If you have any tips, just write a comment.
