Opens photos posted to Gawker sites in a new tab at their original size
This extension enables you to view an image posted to a Kinja blog (Jalopnik, OppositeLock, io9, Gawker, etc.) in its originally uploaded size. To view an image's original size, you had to open it in a new tab and change the file name to "original.jpg." This extension streamlines that process. To use: Hover your cursor over an image, right click, and select "Open original size in new tab." The image will open in a new tab in its largest available size. Note: Often, authors crop the leading images to the minimum size before publishing. This extension won't enable you to view such images at a larger size. Updated (Aug. 3, 2013): I added handling for images using the "ku-bigpic" name. Updated (Jan. 19, 2014): Added handling for images using the "k-small" name. Updated (Jan. 24, 2014): Added handling for images using the "avt-small" name. Updated (March 21, 2014): Added handling for images using the "ku-xlarge2" name. Updated (March 28, 2014) Added functionality for new upload URLs.
