How did this start? While looking for hackathons to attend in the school year, we were frustrated by the number of times we had to check how far other universities are from Cornell. Hence, we came up with the idea of Wector: a browser extension that would automate this process for us, and condense five tedious steps into one.

I could not recreate this in icognito mode until I enabled this extension for icognito, so I am fairly certain that something is wrong. Could you take a look into recreating this issue? I am using the latest version of chrome on OSX and I've tried disabling common speed issues such as disabling hardware acceleration or clearing cache and restarting
