- (2015-08-18) James Day: So Awesome! One thing killing it for me at the moment and making me move to WASAVI is that I can't seem to get it to open in GMAIL. (Shortcut is set to "Italicize" and I can't seem to change it.) Thanks Pal!

This was killing me. When I have the extension enabled it automatically minimizes the Ace editing areas on Github. If I add a new area (second file in a gist for example) it will show that file, but then once I refresh the page or try to edit it again they all collapse. Maybe an interaction with Vimium?
