Makes Duolingo more user-friendly

Image from store duoleavemealone for Duolingo
Description from store This extension makes the Duolingo.com language-learning site faster to use by automatically clicking through interstitial screens displayed after entering correct answers or finishing lessons. These screens' messages are displayed briefly onscreen instead. Duo's motivational messages are also skipped, because everyone already knows that you are great! :-D (Note that Duolingo now provides a setting for disabling motivational messages, which is more reliable than this extension's detection logic.) Since this extension interacts the Duolingo site, it's unfortunately likely to stop working if (or when) the site's interface is updated. **This extension is not affiliated with Duolingo.** --- Changes: 0.17: Fix discuss links (which look like they were broken by a Duolingo change). 0.16: Display completion messages after stories. Fix a bug where the next button was clicked prematurely when answering text-entry questions in stories. 0.15: Add support for placement tests (available before creating a profile). 0.14: Make correct-answer messages yellow instead of green when they contain extra information, e.g. typo/accent corrections or translations. 0.13: Improve support for Stories and enable by default. 0.12: Add an option to enable experimental support for clicking the next button in Stories. (Options are available by right-clicking on the extension's toolbar icon.) 0.11: Fix incorrect clicks at beginning of skill tests. Fix discuss links when loading URLs directly instead of navigating from main page. Add spacing between typo messages and discuss links. 0.10: Add experimental support for displaying discuss links. (Not released on Chrome Web Store.) 0.9: Skip start screen when testing out of the current level of a skill (i.e. URLs ending in /test). 0.8: Add options to control message timeouts and center messages horizontally. Also handle checkpoints (i.e. /checkpoint/ URLs) in addition to tests (/bigtest/). 0.7: Add an option page and provide support for automatically starting timed or non-timed practice. (I had to add the "storage" permission to be able to save the option's value.) Also automatically click the next button during checkpoints that are being used to test out of a set of skills. 0.6: Also automatically click the "Next" button on https://www.duolingo.com/practice. Note that motivational messages sometimes (always?) aren't skipped here. Duolingo makes it really hard to consistently detect them. :-(

  • (2020-04-13) Matt Fellenz: This is quite useful for batch strengthening sessions and the likes. However, I wish there was an option to go back to the screen for any reason, and an option to see the discussion for that question. Other than that, sleek and perfect.

    It would be sweet if there's a preference for showing the report button. The button is actually quite useful in some still-buggy courses.
