User reviews
This extension uses outdated authentication. If you use it, GitHub will spam your email every 3 days as long as the application queries their backend: Please use the Authorization HTTP header instead, as using the `access_token` query parameter is deprecated and will be removed July 1st, 2020. The extension's webpage seems dead as well. I guess it is no longer maintained.
