Refined GitHub

Browser extension that simplifies the GitHub interface and adds useful features

We use GitHub a lot and notice many annoyances we'd like to fix. So here be dragons.

Our hope is that GitHub will notice and implement some of these much needed improvements. So if you like any of these improvements, please email GitHub support about doing it.

GitHub Enterprise is also supported: How to enable it.

Fixes for GitHub shortcomings

Previously part of Refined GitHub

GitHub took inspiration from Refined GitHub and natively implemented dozens of its features, 🎉 so they've been removed from this extension. You can also see all the past features of Refined GitHub in a single list.

Customization

Most features can be disabled if they are JavaScript-based (Experimental) and you can override our CSS with your own in the extension options.

We're happy to receive suggestions and contributions, but be aware this is a highly opinionated project. There's a high bar for adding features. Users will always disagree with something. That being said, we're open to discussing things.
