  • (2022-02-21) Gaspard van Ko: Doesn't work anymore :( This extension is super useful and use to work really well. It made reading code in Github so much easier, especially with code where Github doesn't support "go to definition". But seems like it stopped working.
  • (2020-03-16) Андрей Гуртовой: in the last versions of github is worked buggy. because i see doubling the selected text

  • (2020-01-25, v:2.3) Nick: Restrict extension permissions to github.com
    Upon installation, the extension requests permission to view/modify all data on all sites I visit. Should only by github.com sites.
