Latest issues

  • (2020-08-09, v:2.0.0) Daniel Zanco: PDF file detection feature is annoying, should be opt-in.
    Having a blue banner which says: "PDF file was detected. Would you like to read it on SciHive?" every time I open a PDF file from a random website is really annoying. This feature is opt-out for each domain, but that's not enough for me. I'd rather disable Scihive while not using arxiv than having this "feature". Please add an option to disable the PDF intrusion feature (i.e. make a setting applet for the extension). Scihive is really useful, but this got under my skin today. Thanks for your time, Daniel
