  • (2017-07-25) Alex Crow: I added this just to see how funny it'd be, and to my surprise, it actually is. However, there are three things that prevent me from giving this extension the five stars it so dearly deserves: one, in addition to "who, what, when, where, and why", I've noticed that (at least on TvTropes) "show" is also included in that list. Two, there's no way to disable it on certain sites without disabling/removing the extension. Lastly, three, there are no options or ways to customize or personalize it. I'd like to at least be able to choose which words are followed by "the frick" and potentially add and delete phrases other than "the frick". Other than those things, this is a great extension. It does exactly what it says it does, and pretty well. 4/5 stars.

  • (2018-04-18, v:1.0.2) Can't turn it off...
    Good extension for the most part, but there's no way to disable it. I needed to turn it off for an assignment and I had to uninstall it. It needs an off button.
