The best free scripts available to turkers

Mturk Suite

Mturk Suite is currently the most widely used Mechanical Turk script. It offers a variety of useful features including a customizable HIT scraper, a Panda manager, and a completed HIT tracker, as well as several quality of life changes to the Mechanical Turk site. This is the first script I would recommend most people download and learn how to use. This alone can significantly increase your turking proficiency.

Panda Crazy

Panda Crazy is a feature rich Panda manager that allows for further Panda customization than other available scripts offer, including the one offered by Mturk Suite. Mastering the art of Pandas can really help you catch the best HITs Mturk has to offer, and this script can help.

The original Mechanical Turk HIT review service. Turkopticon allows users to review HITs or requesters and will display review information directly on Mturk. While Turkopticon as fallen out of use lately due to the rise of Turkerview, it is still a valuable resource (although I would only install one or the other.)
