  • Nice suite but doesn't work well with paginated threads
  • I'm a big fan of HN's classic, no-frills, design. Did not think it could be improved but I was wrong. The UI is eye-pleasing, the additional tweaks empower the end-user.
  • All of this is accomplished without any apparent loss of performance. Nice job, dev! Looking forward to updates.
  • Bein sehr zufrieden.
  • Tight Code.
  • super
  • Inability to disable certain features renders this addon unusable. Forced smooth scrolling is just bad.
  • Comment pagination (?p=2) is broken in firefox only.
