Better Spotify Links - dummies

By Kim Gilmour

Better Spotify Links — a great creation from the home of Spotibot, Andy Smith’s music recommendation tool — takes a scary-looking Spotify link and adds a lot of information to it.

Next time you copy and paste a Spotify web address that relates to a track, album, or artist, replace the bit with The result is a beautiful Spotibot-hosted web page dedicated to the track, artist, or album whose link you copied.

To make the job easier for you, a plug-in for Firefox web browsers automatically inserts the bit for you. You’ll first need to download and install Greasemonkey (a tool that helps all these little types of scripts, or piece of code, work) by following these steps:

  1. Go to Greasemonkey and click the Add to Firefox button to begin the download.

  2. Follow the prompts to download the add-on.

  3. Visit the Spotibot Better Spotify Links page.

    A link to the Greasemonkey script is listed on this page.

  4. Click the Spotibot Greasemonkey Script link.

    A dialog box appears, saying This Is a Greasemonkey User Script.

  5. To confirm the installation, click Install.
