userChromeJS allows complete chrome customization when an
extension is excessive.
userChromeJS is derived from the original userChrome.js by zeniko. An import function has been added to enable greater flexibility in absolute/relative file management, along with some overlay tweaks. Thanks to zeniko for the original idea; the bug to implement this functionality in core Mozilla is Bug 332529.
userChromeJS v2.0 (Gecko 14+, Fx14+ and Tb14+ and Sm2.11+)

Platform: All OSs.
Applications: Gecko 14 and higher.
Firefox: signed userChromeJS v2.0 required for Fx40 and higher.
- An extension is not required for small code snippet tweaks or even larger UI modifications.
- An import function lets script and overlay files be organized and shared among profiles and even made portable.
- As of v2.0, xul overlay files are managed to ensure an overlay load is finished before the next one is initiated. Bug 330458 will never be fixed.
