| Compatibility Matrix | Overview


  • Please do not game the Too Many Requests ... if you do the next time will be even longer until you can't access that route for quite some time as well as script installation will fail until the calculated expiration.
  • Sometimes Ad blockers, currently Adblock Plus and QupZilla AdBlock for example, may block the XMLHttpRequests and document requests contained within this script and the site. If these false positives are blocked script updates may not occur depending on the .user.js engine and the targeted installed script. To correct these false positives with the Adblock Plus compatible syntax please enter one, or more, of the following pattern matching custom filter exception rules:
    • @@||*/*/*$document... unblocks the script navigation bar.
    • @@||*/*.user.js$xmlhttprequest... unblocks the .meta.js indirect AJAX requests.
    • @@||*/*.meta.js$xmlhttprequest... unblocks the .meta.js direct AJAX requests.
    • @@||*/*.meta.js$xmlhttprequest... unblocks the .meta.js direct AJAX requests.
    • @@||*/*.meta.json$xmlhttprequest... unblocks the .meta.json direct AJAX requests.
    • ... possibly more depending on the settings at any given time. See this FAQ for a detailed explanation of all supported meta methods.
  • No other miscellaneous notes at this time

  • Use this compatibility matrix to determine if this script is right for your system. Find the platform on the left and find your browser on the top. Where they intersect is the compatibility.
  • QupZilla requires v2.0.0 or better
  • Firefox 57+ is quite crippled and currently there may be limited support for GM4.


This script is designed primarily as a Unit Test to check to see if the production server is returning the metadata blocks only, instead of full script source, on a specific headered request exactly like most .user.js engines do for update checks.

It still offers some functionality in case you want to view the stored metadata blocks that are collected by OUJS.
