Facebook puts some rubbish in my newsfeed, such as someone liking something or someone becoming a friend with someone random or comments on the status' of people who aren't your friend. Is there a Greasemonkey script to filter this?

You can try Social Fixer (formerly named "Better Facebook").
It works on all major browsers except IE.

That allows the removal of likes and new friend notifications – Casebash Aug 12 '10 at 3:24

Depending on the rubbish, Facebook will let you filter this out without the need for any additional scripts.

You can hide apps and you can hide people. The Hide button can't be used to hide the became-a-friend notifications and such. – Rebecca Chernoff Jul 16 '10 at 13:20
