Firefox browser and Grease Monkey

When I downloaded the lastest update for Firefox, I accepted the option to install Grease Monkey. What exactly does it do? I know I should have asked before installing it.

Thanks, Robert, for the link regarding Grease Monkey. I usually do research on new applications before I install them. But, in this case, I did not exercise due diligence before taking the leap. However, I will be more careful in the future.
