I recently switched web browsers due to some… irritations… and I was hoping to find an Addon like "Text Blaze" for Google Chrome. I've gotten very accustomed to having my text "expanded" as it does on mobile devices, and I find the feature very handy. Sadly, this Addon doesn't suit that need at all. Sometimes, it works. It seemed to operate just fine under search engines like Google and other simple forms, and it works well under its own "try it here" form. Most times, however, it doesn't work at all. Noteworthy examples of this are Online Notepad, Discord, and this very review form. Please remedy this and get back to us. Thank you.
