Monobar: A Chrome extension for text boxen.

Enhance <textarea> elements with a status bar that displays current line, current column (position in the current line) and total character count. Add monospaced font toggle for anything editable (Gmail compose windows, Github issues/comments, etc.).

Inspired by Linus Torvald's Github rant.
