Mutual fund and ETF symbols are frequently used in forum thread posts. To make identifying the fund if the name is not provided, and provide a link to the fund's data page on Morningstar, two Boglehead forum members have created tools that work with the Firefox and Chrome browsers to do this.

Firefox: TickerDescribe, a script used with extension Greasemonkey. To use, first add Greasemonkey to Firefox. Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension that allows you to customize the way webpages look and function. This add-on can be found here: http://www.greasespot.net/ After Greasemonkey is installed, use this link to add the user script to Greasemonkey: https://github.com/mas-bogleheads/TickerDescribe/raw/master/tickerdescribe.user.js
