Introducing Boards Companion - a browser extension for Boards

I've developed a browser extension for boards

Main features include:
- Autoload thread and forum pages
- Tag users
- Minimize empty space within posts (click to toggle)

Available here in the Chrome webstore - no other browsers supported yet

There was an initial launch thread a while back, however since then more functionality has been added and for the most part it is fully developed now

Some screenshots:

Looks good. Are you planning on bringing it to other browsers?

Cheers.

I don't have any plans to do so at the moment, however if there was demand for Safari or Firefox implementations I would definitely consider it

I'd certainly be interested in a Firefox one.

I mainly use Firefox myself so I kind of have an incentive to implement it actually.

I'll take a look into it, if it seems fairly feasible to do so then I will

I went ahead with the Firefox version in the end - all features implemented as in Chrome. You can find it here

Is there any way this can be made to block out when a user on an ignore list is quoted? It's the one feature of the ignore list that makes it a bit redundant, you still have to read people on your ignore list when they're quoted...

I know the scorched earth option is there, but not all posts that quote ignored users are a bad thing.
