  • (2019-01-23) Lance E Sloan: I had high hopes for this extension. I liked that the description said it could be activated by clicking the toolbar icon. After it was installed, I saw that it had very good icon and color indicators to show whether it was active. However, it failed to show the img alt values. I tried it with a very simple example: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_image_test It never shows the "Smiley face" alt text. I'm very disappointed.

    I had high hopes for this extension. I liked that the description said it could be activated by clicking the toolbar icon.

I tried it with a very simple example: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_image_test It never shows the "Smiley face" alt text. I'm very disappointed. I've since tried it on other pages (Like http://google.com/) and found that it worked with the Google logo. The image dimming feature is strange and the delay for the pop-up to appear seems longer than the browser's usual delay for showing the "title" text. It also seems to overwrite any existing "title" tags the images may have. They can only be recovered by reloading the page.

    a toggle button to be able to turn this off.
