Our friends at Rewired State, recently had a hackday where Ben Griffins created a Greasemonkey script which,
Publishes links to relevant data.gov.uk datasets next to news articles on the BBC website. Provides important context for those articles and increased visibility for the datasets. Implemented as a simple greasemonkey Firefox script connecting to a simple search service built with Google's ajax search api.Not content with that Ben's already thinking about packaged it as a firefox toolbar rather than a greasemonkey plug-in. Moving away from reliant on google's search apis. and of course, if it supported more websites. There's also a potential to add crowd-sourced citations too.
