Release notes

Released Aug. 24, 2020

  • Big update, which moves the project to a 1.1.0 point release
  • For Chrome 85 compatibility: Migrating AJAX xhr requests for cross-domain stylesheets to background.js (behavior in Firefox is unchanged)

  • Firefox bugfix: CSS load blocking styles are applied/removed in a different manner, which avoids breaking default styled input elements
  • Style enhancements to popup.html
