Cleans and simplifies the NYT puzzle pages
Welcome to Crossclean! This extension removes a lot of the cruft on the New York Times online puzzle pages, and gives new tools to navigate and enjoy them! I am a big fan of the NYT crossword, but I found that over time they added a lot of material that was distracting or unpleasant to me, which made it harder to use. Additionally, there were options I wanted which they didn't provide, so I made this extension to help. Features: - Optionally remove the imposing advertisement areas and other features from the page, such as: Wordplay section The sitemap footer Scrolling alternate puzzles carousel - Adds the ability to show/hide the across or down clues, for those that want an additional challenge - Adds a keyboard shortcut (CMD+0) for the pencil tool, for easy switching I hope you enjoy this extension, please get in touch with any requests for features or improvements!
- (2020-11-03) CD: Ads still show, so the experience doesn't look very clean. I could live with that, but the Cmd+0 keyboard shortcut doesn't work for toggling the pencil. I've tried restarting Chrome, refreshing the tab, and trying the crossword in a new tab. Cmd+0 also conflicts with the shortcut to zoom out, which is perhaps why it's broken.
