StackOverflow Power User

StackOverflow Power User is a free and open-source Google Chrome extension for every developer that spend time on StackOverflow website. It helps finding the best answer rapidly, and improve the way you navigate through the website.

Here are the main features :

  • Show answers sidebar (with vote counts) & inform you if you have previously upvoted an answer
  • Show indicator when there's a better answer than the accepted one
  • Show indicator when there isn't any answer to the question
  • Auto-scroll to first answer
  • Navigate through answers with keyboard arrow keys (left/right)
  • Auto expand votes count & Show answer score (in percent)
  • Bring scrolling behavior to vote buttons, so that you still see them even on long posts
  • Expand all comments automatically when performing CMD/Ctrl + F
  • Hide the new StackOverflow left sidebar that takes so much space for useless links
  • Hide elements from StackOverflow right sidebar to prevent distraction

StackOverflow Power User is available via the official Chrome Web Store.
