Shows About in a tooltip when mouse over any username. 2. Splits Hacker News main page in two columns (left: news, right: newest) 3. When clicking on discussion/comments the page loads on the right column. - Remembers the last viewed comments page on the right column, when returning from a clicked page (if not a new tab). 4. The comment/reply is sent dynamically, without needing page refresh. 5. "More" is loaded dynamically in the same page for New/Newest Updates: 20/1/2011 Fixed a bug with a Newest content RegExp that made it look empty. Added: Feature 5 Fixed: Now XHR requests happen in queue, to avoid not loading in case of simultaneous request. Per the request of http://news.ycombinator.com/user?id=sathyabhat, the reply now happens dynamically too. Added sliding the page to the top, after comments page for a story has loaded. Per the request of http://news.ycombinator.com/user?id=trotsky, the timer for the user pop-up has been increased to avoid being shown by accident.

  • (2015-11-13, v: Wendy Randquist: Wonky color & appearance
    Hello! I've been using Hacker News UX for a long time now, and love the interface. Interacting with the site on other computers without the extension puts me pretty out of sorts. Today I went to the site and found that everything's off. The screen is a really horrible shade of dark orange, the header links are down at the side of the screen and... Here's a screenshot: http://www.awesomescreenshot.com/showImage?img_id=750891 I don't know if this is something in my local environment or what - I've disabled and re-enabled, disabled my other extensions, quit the browser and come back. There don't appear to be any errors in the console, but there is some output: startup, version =1.3.4 myscript.js:189 loadURL >https://news.ycombinator.com/newest myscript.js:733 onRequest.callback > 0,1 myscript.js:733 onRequest.callback > 200,2 2myscript.js:733 onRequest.callback > 200,3 myscript.js:733 onRequest.callback > 200,4 If you have time to help me figure out what's going on, or identify if it's a recent bug on your end, that would be fantastic. Thank you!
