PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE NEW INTENSION INSTEAD. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/instafact-go-a-fact-on-ev/apikechmghiadgpjhpnmgjkgkaideajb Get an interesting fact delivered to you on every page you visit! This is a very unobtrusive plugin that spices up your internet surfing by showing you an interesting fact on every page you visit. Changelog -------------------- V1.41 - Completely different way to position our facts bar. This new way should support a lot more websites. V1.40 - Facts navigator - Better Facebook sharing - Faster (Better facts caching in general) - Fixed critical bug when viewing google images. Facts no longer display on google image pages. V1.38 - Added some fixes to styling (font-weight) - Added major layout fix that will fix layout on most annoying websites (wikipedia, etc) ----- Known Issues: Facts will not be displayed on pages where there is a sticky header (ie Facebook, Twitter, some Google sites). This is an known issue and I'm looking at ways around this. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

  • (2016-04-30) Manny Saiz: I love this app. So many different facts. I just wish it stayed on the page a little longer.Some times it wizzes by so fast I can't read the fact. Oh well! A problem for the developer!
  • (2012-07-26) Peggy Sung: It's alright, I guess. It does what it says, but few of its facts are actually "awesome", as the name implies. The average weight of a giraffe might be a fact, but it is not particularly interesting. There are also typos and grammatical errors, and some "facts" just repeat factoids that are common to the internet but are simply not true, or questionable statistics that cannot possibly be corroborated. Still, it's somewhat entertaining at least. And I like the general concept.

    After a while of scrolling through facts it eventually stopped showing me facts. I have tried many things and none of them have worked. If you have any tips to fix this please reply
