Chickenfoot is a Mozilla Firefox web browser extension which adds scripting ability to the web browser. It puts a programming environment in the browser's sidebar, allowing the user to write scripts to manipulate web pages and automate web browsing. In Chickenfoot, scripts are written in a superset of Javascript that includes special functions specific to web tasks, designed to help a user easily automate a web task or customize their browsing experience.

For example, Chickenfoot allows to automate certain repetitive tasks such as logging in to websites, filling out forms, or accessing information. Chickenfoot enables users to customize web sites without understanding HTML code. A concept unique to Chickenfoot is that of keyword patterns, which identify parts of a web page based on names close to these parts.

Chickenfoot development started in 2003.
