A Chrome extension that makes a few sites a little better
Nagfree is a Chrome extension that allows you to write scripts that fix the usability of some sites. For example, it allows you to right-click on images on Instagram, add reading times to the New Yorker, and add larger thumbnails to the search results page on Wikimedia Commons.
- Either download this extension and unzip the file or use
git cloneto clone the repo.
- Go to your Chrome extensions.
- Enable 'Developer mode' (switch on the right).
- Click the 'Load unpacked' button on the top left and select the directory.
- Go to whitehouse.gov. If the font is set to Comic Sans, the extension is running!
