    So what do y'all do to back up your scripts? I got a replacement laptop pretty quickly when mine fried but I did not have anything in my HIT Catcher or Turkmaster when I started again :(

    Tampermonkey has an export feature in the utility tab. You can even auto upload to dropbox, google drive, or onedrive. I just export all once in a while so that I can still dig all my code out if something bad happens to my computer or I'm not at home.

    edit: You can still lose stuff in local storage with fancy scripts that let you save things, but some of those have their own backup options. Actually, I just looked, and tampermonkey also has the option to save all of the local storage on export, so that's really all you need.
