The AV Club has modified its site to prevent the use extensions such as this one, so this extension no longer functions properly
Note: Due to changes to the AV Club website, this extension isn't working properly at the moment. In mid-August of 2017, AV Club (www.avclub.com) moved to a new content system called Kinja. Unfortunately, I found the new layout of the site too difficult to use. I've made this quick & dirty extension that reformats the main page of the site to be a little bit more like the old site. It isn't meant to look good. It's just meant to tide me over with enough features until they properly fix the main website. This extension does not make any changes to the Kinja commenting system. You will need to get a different extension for that. Instead, it focuses on how articles are laid on out of the main page. I mainly go to AV Club for the long-form content about certain subjects. Like the old site, the extension - lists an article's subject along with its headline - removes article excerpts in order to save space - arranges articles in three columns so that it's faster to scan the headlines - has a list of recent reviews It also shrinks the newswire articles to just their headlines, just like the old site, so that they don't crowd out the long-form content. It can optionally do the same magic on "Great Job Internet" articles. The extension downloads data from a separate website about what categories all the articles are.
